I always liked this one. Sappy Parrish blogging, I know, but I like it.
I googled "Daybreak" and found this, in part:The Gibsons had bought the Parrish paintings from a New York gallery. In 2006, the same year they now say they separated, the couple spent the most ever for a Parrish painting–$7.6 million for “Daybreak.”But they bought at the top of a bloated market, and sold in a recession. They lost money when they had to sell. “Daybreak” sold at Christie’s for $5.2 million–well below what they paid four years ago.That was four years ago when Poor Mel was whining about being broke.
I first saw it on The Present album. I like this and one or two other Maxfield Parrish but I lost the Art War long ago and folded my art and stowed it away for a long time before giving it all away. I think most of what I like best these days would be sneeringly referred to as, illustrations.Poor Mel. He should have done unrepentant. There is nothing evil in refusing to hew to the party line and Mel, if he's anything, is a hewer. I don't care what anybody says when it comes to some things. The man's words fade to nothing compared to the deeds of the greatly loved Roman Polanski.
