Today I'll talk about Nikki de Saint Phalle. I saw a documentary last night about her, and I saw a large exhibit of her work, in Rome, last November. She was extremely creative, and enjoyed large pieces. She said that she left her conservative family to live the free artist life, and then when she was successful, people like her family were buying her work and placing them in their conservative homes. She thought that was funny. Everybody loves her Nanas. Hoy voy a hablar de Nikki de Saint Phalle. Anoche vi un documental sobre ella, y el ano pasado vi una gran exhibicion de su obra, en Roma. Ella era muy creativa, y le gustaba hacer piezas grandes. Dijo una vez que habia dejado su familia conservadora para vivir la vida libre de una artista, y ahora que tenia exito, gente como su familia compraba su trabajo y lo ponia en sus casas conservadoras. Le parecia muy gracioso. A todos nos gustan mucho sus Nanas.
