5 Questions- Hillary Butler

A couple of weeks ago, I came across a blog post that featured some beautiful art work by Hillary Butler. I headed over to her website to look at more of her art work. All of her paintings are so beautiful but I think Serenity Now is my favourite piece. Anyway, I knew that I wanted Hillary to participate in 5 Questions and I was so, so, so excited when she said yes!
 
I love Hillary's answers...here's what she had to say:

1. Something on your bucket list:
Hike part of the Pilgrimage Trail to Santiago de Compostela in Spain.

2. Best piece of advice and/or favourite saying/quote:

Oh- so many to pick from!! "Comparison is the thief of joy" would have to be the top one that is running through my head these days. I need to be reminded of that every minute of every day!

3. Favourite place:  San Francisco
a) Where to stay: Hennessey House, Napa
b) Where to eat:  Farrallon's, Union Square
c) What to see/do: Martin Lawrence Galleries, head out to wine country, check out SF's amazing farmer's market, ride the cable cars, sketch at Golden Gate Bridge Park

4. You're given $10,000 and 24 hours to spend it. You can't give it to other people, invest it or save it. What would you do:
Hands down- I'd buy as much of a Chagall original as I could, although I think this would only buy me a signed print :).

5. Historical figure or fictional character you'd like to be:

Well, I'd have to make sure I went back to a time were there was toilet paper... Probably a member of the Hemingway/ Fitzgerald/ Stein meeting of the minds when they all lived in Paris. Oh, to be part of that synergy of young creatives who undoubtedly changed the way we currently view modern art and literature.  
 
 
 
HUGE thank you to Hillary for taking time to answer these questions. I really appreciate it!
