I'm trying to figure out if I can get to Washington to see the Ito Jakuchu show before it closes next week. Check this out:

What is astounding is that Ito was painting stuff like this around 1750. I look at this, then I look down at my hands, and I whisper this simple prayer:
Lord, help me to become the painter my dog already thinks I am.
