francois and me . . .
Along with Degas I LOVE - - LOVE I tell you - - the paintings of Francois Gall. I wonder why no one has ever written a book about him! He has done many, many paintings of the ballet as well as other subjects that I just absolutely love. If I could I would produce a book filled with pages of full color images of his work - especially the ballet. You know what I think? In this so-called modern age I think that any artist who has produced a great body of work should publish themselves. ( I think that with blurb books anyone can produce at least one copy!) Let's take Catherine Jeffrey or Janett Marie (or you) for example. Each of them has a great body of beautiful work that I think should be published in a book. If someone published a beautiful book featuring my 'homey' Francois Gall - I would scream and laugh and dance and cry and laugh and holler and run and flip . . . I think you get the picture . . .
