suena-brillanteI’m currently on the search for some wall art to put in my living room. Not sure exactly what I want yet. Does anyone know of any good places to look (if Etsy, please name some specific artists). I’ve been looking for days and I just haven’t found what I want yet. I kinda like the above though.

I’m sure most people have already seen this. And if not, I highly recommend it, as it is probably now my favorite film. It’s inspiring to say the least, and gives a sense of empowerment. I know this an older film but it is still great. And yet so many people belittle art and those who choose to study it in school. I feel like there’s a lot to learn from the history of artists. This film does a wonderful job portraying that.

Maggie Gyllenhaal plays my favorite character. (Not that I promote sleeping around with professors and married men.) But she stands up and lives the life she wants from the very beginning. She is a liberal in conservative school and she never conforms to their ideals. She remains true to who she is and what she believes in. She supports Katherine (Julia Roberts) her professor for trying to let the other women know that they can live up to be so much more.

This is an unusually long post and about a film (out of character for the blog). But I was inspired and I want other people to feel inspired as well. Below is one powerful scene from the film.  But I hope you’ll take the time to watch the whole thing.
