I've never done this on Blog before, but I'm going to recommend a film. Last night I went to see "Tim's Vermeer". It is a documentary about one man's attempt to recreate a painting of Vermeer's. It is a fabulous film! Did he actually "paint a Vermeer"? Of course not, only Vermeer could do that. But the process is absolutely fascinating! The work he went to over several years and all the things he had to learn, his patience & perseverance & brilliance, is astonishing.
If you are an artist or someone who loves technology and invention, or if you are just interested in those things, it is a must see film!
