Seraphine de Senlis

This wonderful artist, Seraphine Louis, known as Seraphine de Senlis is worth knowing about. This movie about her is very good. It stars Yolande Moreau, and was made recently. I relate very much to the intuitive source of her work. She had a hard life, and sad end, but when you look at the paintings you realize that she was also filled with joy and must have had a rich and beautiful life too. The way we see what is wealth or happiness or well-being is sometimes very limited. I think her life is an example of one lived on inner wealth. I find that very inspiring. And if you want more, go here.
