Hi Brenda

Have you ever seen the video about Bacon? It's worth finding. He was severly alcoholic - worked out of a studio that was utter chaos yet his apartment was spotless and elegant. He was a furniture designer in his early years I think? There was terrible sexual abuse in his youth which I believe he buried under drink but screams from every canvas...

Hi Martha -
No, I haven't seen it but it sounds great. I've seen pictures of his studio... what a dump! I will look for that, I love biographies.
Have you made your little creatures with the bleeding hearts yet? Mine are in full bloom right now, I think they are my current favorite.
Happy spring
Brenda

My bleeding hearts are in bloom right now, too! I will post those pictures tomorrow!
They are very beautiful.
