I’m just going nuts with these little birds! ๐Ÿ™‚ This is a teeny little canvas that I’ve put on Etsy. I think I’m going to do a whole series of these little guys this week until I’m just sick of them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I added two new sections to my livejournal sidebar – what art book I’m currently reading and my Inspiration of the Month. I’ll be writing tomorrow about Billy Blob, who I’ve been a fan of for years!

I Bought Andy Warhol
by Richard Polsky

I’m almost finished reading “I Bought Andy Warhol” and I’m really enjoying it. I promised myself that, this year, I was going to really educate myself on my larger art community. I just have a difficult time reading art “textbooks” and was hoping to learn about the current scene as well as art history in a more friendly format.

This book has been just the ticket! It has a conversational tone and is rife with that sense of slipping behind the scenes to learn the real nature of art dealing in the 80s and 90s. It’s funny, insightful, and I’ve enjoyed it a lot more than I had expected to.

I expect to finish reading this in the next week and I have “The Art of the Steal: Inside the Sotheby’s-Christie’s Auction House Scandal” by Christopher Mason next on my reading list.
