I've never considered myself to be museum bourgeois or like super hoity toity or anything, but the more I learn about these works of art and the people who created them, the more unsatisfied I become with just looking at photographs in my textbook.
My most recent obsession? Abbott Handerson Thayer. He sought to create an ideal American woman in his paintings. My favorite is The Virgin.
First stop in my grand tour: Boston. Museum of Fine Arts. Anybody want to come with?
Also- I wouldn't wish a cold sore on my WORST enemy. So terrible.
And one more thing- I didn't say thank you to the boy who just came into this study room to take out the garbage because I was too distracted. Worst. Feeling. Ever.
