after Gentileschi, watercolor detail
"History is for human self-knowledge ... the only clue to what man can do is what man has done."
— R. G. Collingwood
I'll read deep history and make magic (something out of nothing).
Turns out, I made more of that vow than I could have imagined and have been working away at it ever since. I mean, every, single day.
I've created a three-part series of courses on the history of painting and will be offering it online starting in January. I'll write more about it in the coming months and you can read preliminary info on it here but wanted to mention it now so that, if you think you might be interested, you can add your name to the waiting list and be notified of more details as they arise. Small groups, as usual, and limited space.
I've been (mostly) down with a debilitating infection for the past six days so I'm going back to bed now with my new cozy murder mystery (author's description, not mine), Graham Norton's Holding. It's good company.
