Some call it the Writing Cave, or the Writing Cubby, or the Writing Well. I call it the Writing Bubble, that special place that writers go to do the thing they love the most. After last year's publication of Pieces of Tracy and all the related online activity, I'm switching gears and retreating (somewhat) to the Writing Bubble in order to devote myself to my next book. While I would love to share details, now isn't the time. But I do have a story that's coming along nicely and even a working title. That's all I can say for now. I want to thank everyone for understanding why the entries might be coming a little less frequently. However, I'm still active on social media so please say hello on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram when you see me!
Happy New Year! Let's kick off 2014 with some artful speculation.
Here's a Times article about a new traveling show built around forgeries. It seems that these days even fakes have merit, particularly those that have a juicy story to tell.
One author, Jonathon Keats, who has written Forged: Why Fake are the Great Art of Our Age, says, “forgeries are more real than the real artworks they fake,” because, “they genuinely manipulate society rather than merely illustrating alternate points of view.”
Check out the slideshow at the link of the Matisse above and decide for yourself the value (or lack thereof) of these peculiar works.
