Guest Post: I Know Art – Paul from The Captain’s Speech

I took over Jess’ blog today to share my insightful and humorous thoughts on a few pieces of artwork! Please go read it. I’m begging you.

You're Fine


In college, I majored in Art History. I’m an art nerd. I spent many sleepless nights studying Mary Ellen Mark, Caspar David Friedrich, and my art beau, Jacques-Louis David. There’s no better feeling than spending countless hours finishing my final papers at the end of every semester, downing coffee and pulling all-nighters, and then being able to see the paintings in the flesh. While I trample through the crowds at the Louvre, I’ve asked my dearest friend Paul from The Captain’s Speech to pull a Sister Wendy and share his thoughts on a few art pieces I’ve selected for him.

    I was eating cereal, Tim walked in the room, I read the first sentence and spit the cereal back in the bowl, laughing. And from Tim? *sigh* So I shushed myself, kept reading, shoulders shaking, and then ran out of the room. This is priceless!
