2009 rhymes with marshmallow

hello and a belated happy new year!
i have been hard at work making new things for etsy, working on upcoming shows and other exciting stuff. it's been kind of a stressful and anxiety filled week (and it's only wednesday), so i really hope i can get things rolling again and feel better soon.

i have been humming this song a whole lot.

i cannot stop marveling at the amazing beauty of this painting by josefa de obidos. i wish i could find a poster of it somewhere or the museum it lives in so i can see it in person. her work has been incredibly inspiring for me lately.
to sum up the new year, 2008 was the absolute worst and best year of my life. 2009 looks very mysterious and interesting, and is starting as the polar opposite of what last year was. it's full of wonderful people already so that's a very good start! i hope yours is just as mysterious and wonderful.
ok 2009 here we go!

I wasn't trying to be picky. I took a Women in Western Art course (I'm a senior in Art History) and my advisor/professor really drove home the importance of inclusion of women in art history teaching.

oh, i didn't think you were, i was just thanking you for correcting me and agreeing it's a gorgeous painting :)
i took a similar class, she (josefa) was the subject of one of my papers and i've been a fan ever since

I find the above painting to be so haunting. Just perfect for my blog. I'll be posting it with a link to your site.
