  1. Pieter Breughel the Elder (c. 1529- 1569)

    Pieter Breughel the Elder was by all standards an absolute giant in the history of art. In some ways his reputation is not unlike that of Titian, Velasquez, Ingres, and Bonnard... a painter's painter who only grows in estimation over time. I first came to him through the work of Hieronymus Bosch and imagined him originally to be something of a poor man's version of Bosch... complete with preening peasants dancing.

    Grains of sand sifting
    over her bones
    until her corpse unearthed
    and unknown

    None to answer

    The trick about getting the idea in one's head to write a novel, is that in order for it to acutally happen, you have to commit yourself to it.

    This has always been my problem. I've got novel ideas coming out of my ears, but I just keep running into issues of TIME.

    I'll admit, there have been times when I really wasn't too busy to be writing. I've had my share of lazy summers and easy semesters. For those, I will take responsibility for. Still, I'm not getting any younger, ...
