So, a new movement has been stirring in the painting world. I guess you could call it a mini-movement but a movement none-the-less.

Nwantinti, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, 2012

This movement is being called the new Intimists, coming after the older Intimist movement consisting of a group of late 19th and early 20th century artists . . . → Read More: Have You Heard of the New Intimists?

What Are Your Stories?

This week I finally saw the amazing Sarah Polley directed film, Stories We Tell, from 2012. What an amazing film!
