In a world. Far, far, away. I spent hours in a gallery admiring the paintings of Errol Boyle. Fortunate enough to be guided by him through his studio, and gallery. An experience, no less, inspirational than Van Gogh in Zurich, Monet In New York City, or Kandinsky in St Petersburg. Unbelievably special to see one of his works, in a collection of a private home that is, itself majestic. I have so much to learn.
