last night my H and I watched seraphine. it is the true story of a simple working woman who secretly mixes paints (think waxes and ground up flowers) in her little apartment and paints passionately, obsessively into early morning. she claims her angels instruct her to create. she befriends a collector who is struck by her talent......I cannot say more! you must see it for yourself. it is fascinating and oh what cinematography!! here is some of her work.
it is wild and possessed. i always think about those people who could potentially create masterpieces but simply don't have the means to do so because of gender or class limitations. let me know if you get a chance to see it.
paz. happy weekend.
