A fellow sculptor Karen Terhune and I drove up to Bedford Indiana this past weekend so that I could pick out some stone for a new commission. While we were driving, Karen told me about her favorite book (and I think movie), "The Agony and the Ecstasy". The book is by Irving Stone. It is a biographical novel of Michelangelo. I can't get enough! it is so funny how little things in the book really strike home. I have just started the book, but already, it has captured my mind. The best part so far was when one of the Medici sons asked Michelangelo to participate in a hunt. Michelangelo responded that he would rather carve. That is the story of my life. I would rather carve than just about anything!
