picasso + lump.

my very thoughtful friend, carol, gave me this magnificent book about picasso and the relationship between him and his dog, lump. the book is set in vallauris, france (the town where i will be doing my residency) at his villa la californie. i can completely relate to, appreciate, and understand their relationship. this previously untold story has stolen my heart. it is my new favorite book . . .

Hi Rae!
I love reading about lump and thinking about our dogs and the joy they bring to us. Take a look at my blog about another great dog lover: A.R. Ackerley and his beloved dog TULIP.
Best,
Verda
