Reflections on quick hit recommendations of note: 1. I recently viewed a great chapter from the four-part PBS series, My Wild Affair, entitled The Rhino Who Joined the Family, documenting a compelling episode in the short (and still-difficult) history of hand-rearing wild rhino. In this case, a chronicle of an orphaned black rhinoceros (Rupert) as a result of the damming of the Zambezi River in (then) Rhodesia. A must-see for anyone working in or supporting the conservation movement! Available via stream and on dvd. 2. One of my fav collaborators/artists, Randy Polumbo, was recently featured in an excellent article by Deborah Copaken writing for Cafe. Randy’s work is infectious, mysterious and fun, and I alway enjoy talking to him about art and life. This read is a candid venture into his family history and amazing creative energy. 3. For decades I’ve enjoyed buying/using art supplies from Daniel Smith via catalog and online. The materials they engineer, re-sell and recommend always seem to be thoughtful and respectful of the creative process and artist’s development of technique. As they are returning to their roots as a manufacturer of pigments and paint, all of the other wonderful items they carry are on (bittersweet) close-out with on-going discounts. Stock up while you can! 4. We’re still [sic] at war and I think Veterans deserve at least a month (or forever) instead of a day. History matters and remember to take care of those who take care of you.
