finding magic in everyday life
I learned something today! I have only ever heard of magical realism in the literary sense with works like One Hundred Years of Solitude. This painting doesn't really fit the literary definition, so I had to look it up to see the artistic definition.Thanks for making me use my brain today. Otherwise, it would have just been laundry and "Max and Ruby."
I also found it interesting that there's some controversy between "magical" and "magic" realism. I haven't quite figured out the difference on that, though.Btw, my Max loves the books and seemed a little confused that his sister wasn't named Ruby.
