Happy Fourth of July all! I’m on a major Félix Vallotton kick lately, and love his woodcut, Fireworks, from L’Exposition Universelle, held in Paris in 1900. Our apartment completed a brand new rooftop deck yesterday, just in time for Milwaukee’s fireworks display last night. Now heading to my hometown for some nostalgic parade watching, and backyard BBQ.

Happy 4th all! I’ll be making the most of today—waving a tiny flag at my hometown parade, grilling with friends, and pulling out a comfy blanket for the fireworks tonight.
