  1. Interesting: yesterday I worked all day with my client scanning and organizing more images for abook and DVD (paintings, sculpture, children’s books, drawings) and he said (of his mom who was very prolific–never well-known): Bruce, all this is about love, the love that was not in her life,the love her partner never gave her. She created out of love and found love in creating.
