These aren’t my pictures but I love them. Merlyn and Hilda had a quiet twosome up in Ojai but later I got to go down to Long Beach and enjoy a delicious meal Merlyn prepared. They are in the midst of a major remodel in their condo and are living in another unit in a sister building. They’re hoping to be back home by June 1. It could happen….
Hilda found a wonderful biography of Hilma af Klint, a groundbreaking Swedish artist and great influence on one of our Persian Poetry companions. There is a charge, around $5 and I don’t know who gets the money. It might come out for free at some point.
Hilmaa af Klint, from Wikipedia: “October 26, 1862 – October 21, 1944) was a Swedish artist and mystic whose paintings were the first Western abstract art known to the current art community. A considerable body of her abstract work predates the first purely abstract compositions by Kandinsky. She belonged to a group called “The Five”, a circle of women inspired by Theosophy who shared a belief in the importance of trying to contact the so-called “High Masters“—often by way of séances. Her paintings, which sometimes resemble diagrams, were a visual representation of complex spiritual ideas.”
