"If you could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint."

It’s the birthday of Edward Hopper

Hopper had only sold one painting by the time he was 40 years old, but his first major exhibition — in 1933 at the Museum of Modern Art — made him famous. His pieces in that show had titles like Houses by the Railroad, Manhattan Bridge Loop, Room in Brooklyn, Roofs of Washington Square, Cold Storage Plant, Lonely House, and Girl on Bridge. Though his work was more realistic and less experimental than most other painters at the time, he painted his scenes in a way that made them seem especially lonely and eerie.

"Maybe I am slightly inhuman… All I ever wanted to do was to paint sunlight on the side of a house."

Watching HBO’s The Leftovers?

I liked the book by Tom Perrotta. My jury vote still out on the TV version, but I am watching.

The artwork seen here/there is by  Jon Foster using 3d renders for lighting and composition, sculpted figures using Zbrush, exported to Cheetah 3d

Not Vincent’s bouquets tumbling from a pitcher,

or his gardens of sword-shaped leaves and blooms

spilling off canvas, but these wife-picked flowers -

glass vase alone by the white wall,

plants I have been tending since childhood.
