I'm still knee deep in audition preparation, so once again, knitting content is scant. Beverly has come up with a good meme for today. This one is all about art. What's your favorite painting? Here's mine.
This painting is by William Bouguereau and it's called Bohemienne. Until recently, it was owned by the Minneapolis Institute of Art (if you're so inclined, click here to read an article about the MIA and this painting). One summer when I was about 15, my friend, Amanda, and I took a creative writing class at the art institute. One of our assignments was to wander around until we found a painting that we liked and then park ourselves in front of it and write whatever came to mind for 15 minutes or so. Bohemienne is the painting that I liked then and it's still a favorite.
