Julia Morrisroe is a painter and associate professor at University of Florida. Looking at Painting began as a way to share my commitment to look and occasionally write about a wide variety of painting, contemporary and historical. In particular I'm looking at this as public commonplace book, a long term project to explore what I mean when I say 'thats a painting'.

Today and tomorrow I'm posting Bruegel, like DeKooning, he's one of my favorite painters. I look to Bruegel to help me understand how paintings tell stories, how they help me remember places and people and experiences that are far away, both in space and time.
