Blogging Update and a Self-portrait by Dora Carrington

If you’re wondering why my posting has been spotty and brief, it’s because my beloved laptop died a few weeks ago. A new one is on its way from Amazon. Things should be back to normal sometime next week. 

Please enjoy this early work by Dora Carrington, by way of apology.

The Aesthetic Delights of Hilma af Klint

I’m having a particularly strong Hilma af Klint (1862-1944)  moment phase obsession. This extraordinary, trail-blazing Swedish woman is one of my favourite artists and inspirations. Although her strong mysticism is inextricably linked to her artwork, her paintings stand on their own as abstract marvels and aesthetic delights.
