Art books and what I like about them are not a topic that can be covered in one writing. Here are books I’ve been looking at most recently, which include historical, technical, business, and just for fun.
The collection of Hokusai’s work on display at the MFA Boston is so vast that I found myself thinking, “Did this man ever sleep?” Room after room after room after room (all with intriguingly well-chosen wall colors, I might add) of his work kept unfolding in front of us.
Today’s the Boston Marathon, and the city is bustling with out-of-towners. As of this mid-morning writing, it’s 42 degrees out, the sky is grey, and there is a 35% chance of precipitation (increasing over the day).
So many people walk into my shared art studio in Boston’s South End and say, “What a great space!” And it’s true, the space part is great but there are some weird aspects we could do without.
Last year at this time was my first time with a plot in the garden. I can’t even describe how I grew to love going down to the garden and picking fresh arugula for my lunch.
Whenever I would hear anyone say they wished they could be 17 years old forever—or 21 or 25—I would find myself thinking “I’d like to be 42 forever.”
Like most Bostonians, I delight in any sign that Winter 2015 might actually be over. We did, after all, have a half-day of snow this past weekend, and many of us have not forgotten the massive blizzard we had in 1997 on April 1.
