One of my favorite things in the world to do for fun is watch people create art--all sorts of art. Even better than that, is to learn about artists that have paved the way for the rest of us. Usually when the family questions me about what I want nothing comes to mind. This time I am prepared. So far, my Christmas list goes like this as e-mailed to my hubby:
Berthe Morisot Movie, by Caroline Champetier (I don't know how he's going to get this one.I wish him luck.)
Summer in February (the book, but the movie would be fabulous)
a REAL pochade box-the large one by Guerrilla with a tripod (I've been working from a cigar box that's too small and I have to lean down too much.)
Oh, it's going to be a wonderful Christmas.
