The geometric painter, Carmen Herrera, has been painting since the thirties and is finally getting some long due recognition.   Read the New York Times article here.

My favorite quote from the article is Herrrera’s response to the idea that her husband who passed on shortly before her career began to take off is up in heaven orchestrating her success:  “Yeah, right, Jesse on a cloud.”   “I worked really hard. Maybe it was me.”

Right the fuck on.

Oh and thanks to Bruce McD for passing on the link!
