Warhol’s Light Night of the Soul

When you think of Andy Warhol, it’s likely soup cans come to mind. That’s reasonable; his joining of fine art and commerce was iconic, rebellious, and immediate.

Fool’s Gold

What are you not doing because you’re afraid you’ll be deemed a fool? I have news; we’re all fools at one time or another. It’s part of the human condition. Embrace it.
