Farewell painting, sucks to you!

Samuel Morse worked on this painting of his daughter Susan WHILE he was inventing Morse code. It was his last painting; he had decided to give up art in favor of inventing because it looked like the pay might be better.

These ancient painters are so inspiring. I think I'll spend my spare time cloning stuff.

(You can read more about this painting at the Metropolitan Museum of Art; it's their artwork of the day. The Met's front page features a new piece from their collection every day, so it makes a swell home page for art weenies like me.)
