After Rubens 2


After Rubens 2, originally uploaded by jamieshelman.

Tom's been reading Rembrandt's Eyes by Simon Schama which has a large lead in chapter on period paintings by P.P. Rubens. I especially love the ruffled collars and extreme costuming- it's like haute couture on everyday people (and now on my cats!)

How wonderful. Julie the Cat must have one! I must get more work, then.

Simon S. had an interesting series a few years ago on PBS that I enjoyed. Can't remember name of series...but excellent, well-written, & so on. Had read him before then but not seen.

Good weekend. You've not posted today (that I know) but twittered...so you must be drawing. ciao
