I’ve got exams at the moment. This picture is somewhat misleading however. The right half of the image is no longer in progress, that book has been long since closed. If it were a picture from Impressionism, it would be relevant, but that’s one of many Annunciations by Fra Angelico (1395-1455) and that particular piece, painted fresco in a monk’s cell in the Dominican order in San Marco was painted in 1441.
My exams are the reason, not excuse, for my absence.
Last night I went to see Sparks. They were ever so good. I would recommend trying to see them sometime, preferably on the next few nights of this current tour. Last night was number 17 of 21, and it was the album Plagiarism. Jimmy Somerville, formally of Bronski Beat and The Communards, made a guest appearance on Number One Song in Heaven. Fabulous.
