  1. Many, many thanks for another treasure trove of VVG links, Katherine. I thought Michael Kimmelman's review/essay was brilliant. I could lose myself in the extract of letters for weeks! When will I ever get time to draw? When do YOU ever get time to draw?!

  2. Let me put it this way Robyn - I do these VG posts in stages and when I finally get to the morning I post them it has to be one where I don't have any other claims on my time!

    I have to say that I'm just getting the most terrific amount out of doing the research and, as ever, it would be a such a shame not to share it!
