Happy Thanksgiving!!

I hope all you guys out there in Bloggerspace have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Was just glancing over some of the [too] many blogs I've subscribe to and I'm anxiously awaiting my Nicholas Simmons DVD; there are some paintings I've had in mind doing for a long time, and think I may pick up some good ideas from his methods/techniques). So many to read - I must find the time, but for now, got to get that bird in the oven! Have a great holiday, everyone :)

In Memory of Professor Harington

I was so saddened to hear last week of the death of Professor Donald Harington, a former teacher of Art History at the U of A, Fayetteville, AR, and also a very well-known author. He was the most influential and fascinating teacher I've ever had, but I'm only one of countless others who feel the same way. I'm constantly reminded when looking at art or architecture of just how much I learned from this great man, and will always treasure my memories of his teachings about art and life.

To learn more about Professor Donald Harington, and the service to be held at the U of A, Fayetteville, I've listed some sites below:
