Simple Pleasures


How a simple movement of the head or hand gesture can be so amazingly beautiful.

Love this selection of photos over on Mondoblogo from the 2007 book Artists in Their Studios: Images from the Smithsonian's Archive of American Art by Liza Kirwin with Joan Lord. I've shared a few here — you can see more here. This book would be a great gift for an art student (or any art lover, for that matter).
