Just now my muse and ability to mix colors seem both to have deserted me. My large format painting sits half done on the desk and is not coming together at all, let alone in the spirit of the earlier sketches. Yesterday and Sunday i couldn’t even paint and so today it would seem. So I shall go find a book to read.
I include a reading list here for those interested in Isabelle Steward Gardner and her wonderful Museum.
