How is winter settling in for you these days?

I have to admit, I really love the crisp cold bite to the air, it reminds me of all the beautiful things about winter, so energizing and clarifying. So I’ve been pretty happy to dress in a few more layers, put on my mittens, and go walking in the clear bright cold.

Here are some links to spark thought and pleasure this Sunday.

“Be massively idealistic about your art, dream big, open your heart and let the blood pour forth. Be utterly cynical about the business around your art.” Some wisdom from artist Molly Crabapple.

Something about this massive painting of naked older women, unabashed and playful, really lifts my heart.

I love this woman’s TEDx talk about her art, and her connection with polar bears.

I can’t help but share Papirmass – it’s so fabulous, an art subscription pairing visual with literary art.

Let me know what you think, and until next Sunday,
