James Thurber on Art

Here’s what my hometown boy had to say about art:

“Art–the one achievement of man which has made the long trip up from all fours seem well advised.”–James Thurber

Feelin’ This Frida Kahlo Photo

I’ve always loved this photo of Frida Kahlo (which was taken by her dad), but I’m especially digging it today. She looks how I feel.

Daily Diversion #411: Arty Self-Portrait

Recently I bought the loveliest, sweetest Victorian mini-mirror.

 It lives on my dresser, alongside a bunch of other pretty but almost wholly unnecessary bits and bobs.

A few days ago, I decided it would be fun to photograph images reflected in the mirror. 

Quite the challenge, that. 

First up? An image of myself, because it is the easiest thing to do with such a tiny mirror.
