I went to the Unitarian Church downtown this morning, so that I could see Carrie Holst's solo show in the social room. It is always heartening to see the people who appreciate art! Carrie and I sketched a little before the people filled up the room. (See some of the show HERE).
Later today was girlfriend day with my friend Irene. I brought over cheeseburgers and we watched an old VHS movie from her vast movie collection. The movie was called "The Woman in White" and a (fictional character) outdoor painter/tutor named Hartright figured largely in the plot. In this scene he explains that he painted a copy of Rosetti's painting of Lizzie Siddal. Cheeseburgers! Easels! Mystery! Death! Exhumation! A great afternoon.
