Blogger Issues

I'm having difficulty responding to posts on my blog... any ideas? When I hit 'reply,' the page goes berzerk and refreshes constantly making me force quite my browser. I've tried deleting my cache.. but not sure what else to try. I can post easily, it just seems to be weird when I try to respond... any advice? Thanks in advance! : -)

Elizabeth Murray


This was a fun little lesson my long term substitute did on artist Elizabeth Murray. Murray is a painter who used bright, bold colors, and interesting shapes. Murray’s distinctively shaped canvases break with the art-historical tradition of illusionistic space in two-dimensions. Jutting out from the wall and sculptural in form, Murray’s paintings and watercolors playfully blur the line between the painting as an object and the painting as a space for depicting objects.
