It is a good time to clean up my studio.
It is a mess.
Piles upon piles.

I found Marcel Proust stuck in one of my piles.

Perfect.

What else can I say?

He is now out on my easel where I can see him.

…I acquired this poster at a wonderful exhibit of Maira Kalman’s work at The Jewish Museum in NYC in 2011. (Maira Kalman: Various Illuminations (of a Crazy World) I love Maira’s work. I must have read HEY WILLY, SEE THE PYRAMIDS a zillion times to my kids. Her illustrated version of THE ELEMENTS OF STYLE is here in my studio….

…somewhere…wait a minute….it is in one of my piles…

pile of books...
pile of books…

If you don’t know Maria Kalman’s work…visit your library…your local bookstore…
