I loved this walk through of the Matisse exhibit.
"Surgery had left Matisse debilitated, basically chair- and bed-bound. Painting and sculpture had become difficult. His solution was almost child-simple. He picked up more manageable materials and tools: sheets of paper paint-washed by assistants, sturdy scissors and plain tailor pins"
Proof that you have to make your art with the tools you have, to paraphrase a famous musician.
Men care more about out fancy kitchens than women do.
Well of course they do. In this survey, they asked single women and single men. My guess would be single men would see a fancy kitchen as a trophy, and women would see it as a workspace,
Just a theory. Women don't dream of kitchens, sexist researcher people. Kitchens =work to most women. We've been stuck in there for centuries. We'd like to spend less time there, on the whole.
The story behind Irving Berlin's "Always" is even more romantic than I imagined.
It snowed six inches last night, which is small potatoes compared to New England, but is a state of emergency for Virginia. Stay warm!
