Messing around with a hat, a mirror, paint, and a camera today...
I think if artists of the past had access to a camera and a blog, we would have seen endless amounts of stuff like this.
But since they didn't, they probably had to keep their thoughts to themselves, or bribe people to come over and look at their work.
"Dear Friend, maybe in the Spring you can make the trip to see my new work. I will give you a pony if you do".
I love the instant expression.
I can look at things,
and I can show what I see to you.
