Art That Inspires Me: Florine Stettheimer (at DailyArt Magazine)

Because I enjoy Florine's work so much, I wrote an article about her for DailyArt Magazine. Give it a read to learn about her one-of-a-kind life and work.

Tour Great Architecture from the Comfort of Your Home

Want to enjoy great architecture from your couch? I recently discovered a host of virtual tours of famous works of architecture. How cool is that?
