Cat Nap is available in my Etsy Shop.
I went to San Francisco to see the Anders Zorn exhibit at the Legion of Honor Museum on Tuesday. It was mind-bogglingly exquisite. He is one of my favorite artists, ever. My head is humming with inspiration harvested while standing amidst the crowd, in front of his etchings, drawings, watercolors and oils. Next to a Sargent show I saw a number of years ago, the Zorn exhibit was the best exhibit I’ve ever seen. It was amazing. I’ll write more about it soon, but I’m still trying to catch the butterflies in my brain, so I can articulate a sensible reaction, beyond all the superlatives and gushing.
