Portrait of Karl Sakovsek 1910 by Egon Shiele

Today the remarkable Neue Gallery show of 125 drawings by Egon Shiele on 5th Avenue at 86th Street.  As I wheeled myself around, the art project I plan to undertake in the new year came into focus.  I want to draw/paint a Shiele a day for a period of time and write about what it is like for a lesbian feminist to artistically engage with this gifted artist/pedophile.


Congrats, and I’m off…

Congrats to all the GG winners, especially to Thomas King, who once came to Saltspring Island with Leon Rooke to take my photograph, and to Arleen Paré, with whom I wrote in April for NoPo Mo.  (I also am interviewing Arleen for Brick Books about a poem in Lake of Two Mountains.)  Big big congrats to you all, and I’ll see you at the awards!

Off to Toronto for a reading at Glad Day, New York for the Shiele exhibit, Ottawa for the GGs, and Saskatoon for two readings.
