Local Talent

Check out this incredible video from Toronto-based artist Amy Shackleton. She uses gravity and squirt bottles instead of paint brushes to create her unique style. It definitely motives me to always think outside the box and to continuously be inventing new ways of being creative.

New Brides, 1587

"You should not behave as I have seen some women do, who make such a din, and banging and moving about of tables and chairs, and so much noise of plates and knives, that guests expect a sumptuous meal, and at the end realizes that the mountain has brought forth a mouse." 

From a conduct book for new brides (Pietro Belmonte, Istitutione Della Sposa, 1587)
