Kime Buzzelli

I discovered an article about Buzzelli and her paintings in an old issue of Nylon I had lying around. In the article, they ask her a few questions, and I liked her response to this one:

Q: "What was the first thing you ever painted?"
A: "I remember painting lots of paperdolls. As far as a real painting, I used to try to duplicate Picasso women and Odilon Redon flower vases at eight years old."

Frida Kahlo — Self-portrait with Cropped Hair, 1940.

The top lyric translates: "Look if I loved you, it was for your hair. Now that you are bald, I don't love you anymore." She painted this after divorcing from her husband, the Mexican muralist, Rivera.

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

At the Moulin Rouge, 1892

Salon at the Rue des Moulins, 1894

The Clownesse Cha-U-Kao at Moulin Rouge, 1895

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec is my new favorite. I saw a bunch of his paintings today at the Art Institute of Chicago's art museum. He was from France, talented in not only painting, but also print-making and illustration. His paintings draw you back into another lifetime, one that seems so classy and almost magical.

The Mountain

This is an awesome album. I'm in love with Erika Wennerstrom's voice. It's so different, yet so lovely. "Be So Happy", "Out At Sea", and "The Mountain" are just a few good songs, but really the whole album is great.
