No, I have not read the book or watched the movie that so many have been discussing. Instead, I watched the movie, James McNeill Whistler: The Case for Beauty. It was gorgeous, funny, insightful and very inspiring. I truly connected to his concept of portraying things that are appealing and that beautify our living spaces. In paying homage to such beauty in greys, I thought to paint a couple of paintings using a limited color pallet.
