We had a great weekend that started off with a late night at the Dallas Museum of Art on Friday. I got to see Susan Vreeland discuss her latest book, Life Studies. The author talked about how she takes paintings or painters’ lives and weaves stories of what might have been.
I’ve read two of Susan Vreeland’s books and have really enjoyed them so I was very happy to line up and purchase Life Studies and get it signed. If you haven’t read any of her books, I highly recommend The Passion of Artemisia. I’ll keep you posted on how I like Life Studies.
After the book talk my husband and I roamed around the crowded museum. It was so fun to see so many people out enjoying some art. Who would have thought the museum was such a happening place on a friday night. We also saw the original King Kong film and ended the evening by hearing some of the local poets do an Open Mic night.
Saturday was a day for film. We went to see Capote, an excellent film with superb acting, which has left me curious about Truman Capote’s works. For more on Capote you can read Christine’s review.
So fun times were had and now it’s time to jump in bed with a book before the week starts.
