Men and women are misogynistic for different reasons: men to marginalize women, and women to ingratiate themselves with the men trying to marginalize them. Neither one is justifiable, but one is oppressive and the other is a (bad) strategy to deal with that oppression. One thus sees that if the men who are misogynists weren’t, the women who are misogynists wouldn’t have any reason to be. Ergo, exhorting women to stop being misogynists so that men will stop gets it precisely backwards.

New Speed Painting Tutorial! John Singer Sargent Master Copy!

LINK-Watch Now-Link

Watch as I recreate a Sargent portrait sketch in oil. John (1856-1925) is most definitely my favorite painter of all time, and has taught me just about everything I know about painting… You may ask how a dead man could teach us a lesson in painting??? Just look up close to his work, the teachings are in his brush stroke.

The painting took 3 hours and is for sale to anyone interested.

Thank you!

The only thing TV-makers know about chemistry between actors is that it is a rarefied treasure, and it is not to be squandered—as long as the connection happens between a man and a woman.

And that fact tortures fans of so many tv shows.
