Wordless Wednesday: Guilty Pleasure or Research?

I bought this beautiful book (with deckle edged pages and wonderful old photographs and illustrations) as a treat to myself yesterday, over at a new indie bookstore in Rosemary Beach called The Hidden Lantern. You can read a nice review of the book here.

The book is Lee Krasner: A Biography by Gail Levin. Call it guilty pleasure, but I'm writing it off as research for my novel-in-progress. One of my main characters is based on the life of abstract expressionist artist, Elaine de Kooning, who appears numerous times in the book.

I think it's about time for another coffee break... on the balcony....

Love this post. Coffee breaks abound on the writing retreats! Will check out the book too. Thanks for the lead.
