Yes, I stole the title of my blog partly from Jane Austen and partly from Patricia Rozema. Sometimes I find this statement to be more true than I would like to admit. We shall see what of life's busy nothings will emerge on this blog.
I was reading Interview Magazine and there was a small article on Kevin Baker, an up and coming artist from Kentucky who is now working in NYC. I think his paintings are amazing. He is inspired by the kitschy oilcloths that his grandmother used to cover everything with because they were easy to clean. He uses floral oilcloths as his canvas and then paints over them. I think these are beautiful, romantic, whimsical, and heady. I LOVE.
