le femme d'a cote
ah, to be a muse. patti smith once said, 'inspire as opposed to aspire.' well, in those sun drenched days when picasso was painting up a storm in the south of france, one such person appeared and claimed the coveted spot of becoming his muse. at the time pablo was married with two young children, when he spied his pretty young neighbor and a working relationship began. pablo found his, 'girl with a ponytail' and the girl found the man who would instill in her the love of creating art.
