Two New Finds
America as it Was: A Tour of the USA in Vintage Postcards
It combines two of my favorite things - architecture and old postcards. I found it through a link at this site: Pure Gum Spirits. It's the blog of a Chicago painter, with some nifty original paintings and photography. A couple of his works reminded me of a painting that's a favorite of mine, Gustave Caillebotte's (French, 1848-1894) "Paris Street; Rainy Day." The original is at The Art Institute of Chicago. I might have to go pay it a visit!
