  1. I like Marc’s work, but hadn’t seen that one. Thanks!

    … Did you see Eric Carle’s picture-book homage to Marc? “The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse.” Good Xmas gift for small folks.

    • Thanks for the comment. I picked this one b/c LFC indicated that I was in a bit of a 18th/19th Century realist rut, and some more abstract, expressionist/post-modern stuff would “leaven the mix.” There are constraints, b/c I usually stick to pre-1923 artwork (avoids copyright complications), but Marc works.

      And thanks for the book recommendation!

  2. Never heard of Franz Marc. I like this one. Hadn’t considered the copyright angle. (Anyway I was just being a bit snarky; shd post whatever art you like, of course.)
