5.0 étoiles sur 5 More wisdom than any DIY manual for budding artists 4 mai 2013
Par Ankur Verma - Publié sur
There are shows on the History channel these days like American Pickers and one about that famous pawn shop in Vegas; this book has a bit of that air, of a person limited only by her creativity, perpetually on a road searching for the ingredients of her next masterpiece.

She is a prolific artist and that's one thing that stands out in these books written by her. A painter, sculptor and rather intriguingly a law practitioner of some standing.

Now, there are a lot of chapters in these books that might interest the budding artists of America out there as this book has many practical first person accounts of what happens on the road to becoming a professional artist, one who is planning to support a family through art.

Putting together shows, coming across people of assorted descriptions, going out picking up stuff for your sculptures, hitting jack pots at times when you find exactly what you are looking for while for another person the exact same thing is a piece of unwanted junk. This gives you an idea of how certain people thrive on the barter system..

The career of the artist in these books culminates in her owning a gallery at one point, which I confirmed to be a fact.

So these books as a matter of fact have a lot more in them for artists than any DIY manual, even though they are written as autobiographies.

Then comes the legal stuff, these pictures of court houses and a single mother in the middle of mayhem in her life that is falling apart in every sense of the phrase. Regardless of the fact that this is a first person's account and has to received in that capacity, it does bring to one's notice the question of the legal system and whether or really has provisions sensible enough to cater to the needs of the ones who truly are at the mercy of law.

There is so much packed into these life stories... I'll write more as I read more... :)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Made for TV. An Amazing Journey of a Female Artist and Single Mother of 7 Children! 7 février 2013
Par C. Giordano - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
As you begin to read book one, you are entering a 4-book saga, complete with love and loss, agony and ecstasy, adventure and travel from the story of Lynne Heffner Ferrante's life. In many ways, Heffner Ferrante was the `desperate housewife' of the 1960's; combine that with her single-mother-artist's determination and struggles to support her flock of 7, yes 7, children (who are as predictable as a herd of cats) and her quest for romantic love, spiritual insight and artistic inspiration, and now you have an idea of Lynne's saga. (This intricately moving story might be perfect for television.)

With her stage meticulously and historically set in the mid to late 1900's, Heffner Ferrante brings her talents as a visual artist to the page to write vivid tableaus of the life and times of her interesting journey. Her series weaves through Long Island's rich landscapes, sweats the lush and sensual climate of Puerto Rico, lingers with the "strap hangers" in New York City, explores the pious Jewish traditions in the Bronx, and slams against the glass walls of early feminism of the 1950's and 1960's. Its pages tell, with raw description, the ecstatic joys of a first marriage and first children, and heart-wrenching agony of that marriage gone awry, the knife-twisting betrayal of loss of custody, a mother's do-or-die determination to get her children back, her battle with self-esteem, her challenges as a woman in business, her hunger for a worthwhile love, and the ensuing unfolding adventures of a life well-lived. Heffner Ferrante chose not to focus on one theme; instead, she explored the vastness of coming-of-different-ages in a vivid explosion of life on the page.

I will not easily forget Heffner Ferrante's image of her children clinging to her in the courthouse. Or the heroic love story of the breaking ice. Heffner Ferrante's writing has a way of drawing a reader in, starting from the very first hazily-dreamed summer day at the beach and extending throughout her life: with enough detail to enter into her artist's mind, and enough description to make her characters real and unforgettable. Through her work, we're able to experience the feverish and often mechanical pace in which she had to produce art in order to support 7 children as an artist, the joys of inspired artistic creation, the uncoiling of love to wayward lovers, the hopes and joys of a woman clinging to her own idealism, and the anguish of jilted mother-and-child contact. I found her bare-bone description refreshing, her lighthearted anecdotes affable, and, while reading, learned to trust her painstaking ability to lead the reader through the maze of her life.

Her long-form, highly detailed narrative creates an atmosphere in which deeply-invested readers find themselves able to argue with and inherently gain a wisening understanding of this author. Disclaimer: I had the pleasure of editing part of this work and was able to enjoy Lynne's process from the inside out. Her story is a saga that stretches for years, and took a decade to complete. It interweaves through a series of four volumes, in such detail that it stands as a testament to her life's work, all the while remaining fresh and true to herself as a lover of life, a mother, a free spirit, and artist extraordinaire.
