Spotty and Dotty

Poor Dad...twenty years of trying to educate me into developing an appreciation of art and culture and all that happens is that I develop an obsession with polka dots and pinch all his art books that have so much as a mention of Seurat, to serve as potential inspiration for something or other.

One thing I always loved about Seurat is the absolutely gorgeous way his name fills your mouth as you speak it... and of course the pontillism thingy...

What I loved most was his landscapes...they all shimmer. And dead French boho artists will always be a bit of love for me.

I think that constitutes an appreciation of art.

And I love pointillism - particularly actually creating something with it. I once did an elaborate picture entirely in this style - lots of work, but SO worth it.

What constitutes an appreciation of art, Young Thos? I'm only a philistine who turns up her nose at people who are bigger philistines than me...almost my entire pop culture education can be traced to three blogs, five people and a couple of movies.
