A New Page, a Fine Interview, a Favorite Painting and a Funny Coincidence

Inspired by questions Sandi asked in yesterday’s comments, I added FAQ, a new page of Frequently Asked Questions to the blog today. To see it, CLICK HERE.

Later today I somehow got on the trail of an Australian painter from the turn of the century, Rupert Bunny. When I Googled his name, up came an image of one of my very favorite paintings, Repose by John White Alexander, in the Metropolitan, a painting that is always first on my list of things to see whenever I’m in New York. (For my money, the stroke that describes the black sash against the white robe on the figure in the painting is worth everything ever done by the Abstract Expressionists!) I clicked on it, and that took me to a blog, In the Real Art World, that I was not formerly aware of, where I then found a fine interview of a contemporary painter, Stephen Magsig. I am a subscriber to Stephen’s daily painting blog, Postcards from Detroit, and an admirer of his work.

Now for the funny coincidence. I checked my email, and there was  Stephen’s blog, and today’s painting. See it for yourself, at Postcards from Detroit, then take another look at today’s A Farnsworth A Day.


Seth Godin just got me right where it hurts, but where it helps to hear it as long as I act on it. Actually, I have acted on it with my daily paintings on this blog even before I read Seth’s post. But I still have a lot of work to do on the balancing act.

Check out Seth’s post. It’s about writing, but can apply to painting, or just about anything you should or could be doing. It’s short and to the point.

In and out

That’s one of the most important decisions you’ll make today…
