I leave you with a pleasant image that will sit on my blog for a week while I head north to Canada for some much needed family vacation.
This image was inspired by Odilon Redon, one of my favorite painters. He lives on that strange transition zone from classical to modern, not quite impressionist, certainly not academy, but something in between. I grew up with a reproduction of this Redon image on the walls of my childhood home. Little did I know then how to parse it, but now I find this painter's work completely compelling. Use Google images to see a host of his work. See you in a week.
