Well, it was a gorgeous Saturday here in Maine that got pretty close to 80, so really, I can't complain. Also, I just got the wonderful news that I have been invited to be a part of the Sylvia Kania Gallery art co-op I mentioned in my last post!!! I'm very excited. This is a really neat and dynamic group of artists with a ton of good work. I'm flattered to be accepted. Speaking of which, here is Clyde, the second painting in the Bonny, Clyde & The Reaper series. Only one more to go...
Today I took a trip to a favorite local antique mall to scope out the cool junk. Now, I am a collector of many things and one of the things I love is antique barware; stemware, highball glasses, stirrers, books, etc... Cocktails used to be such an art form and I love to see all the accessories they used to use to create them and bar books are a hoot and usually have really nice artwork inside. So, today my score was a nice martini pitcher and the large owl glasses below which just happened to match the two smaller ones I already had! And I thought I'd throw in another pic of a special piece I got for Christmas. This is rare antique ceremonial Shriner's champagne glass. Shriners and champagne, two of my favorite things!
I've discovered another artist I'd like to share. When I saw Travis Lampe's work I admired his paintings of course, but the sense of humor both he and his paintings have cracked me up. Most of his creations feature things crying and he has a series of successful vinyl toys called Teardrips that I'm coveting. The two below are some favorites; the unicorn with the gut and the broken rainbow and the man doing a trust fall with a hot dog... priceless.
And did you Lovelies read about the poor 5-month pregnant woman who, in an attempt to escape from an attacking black bear, ran out into the middle of the road and got hit by a car? Luckily, she and the baby are okay. But come on, talk about bad luck. Is this real life?
Until next time: unpleasant dreams.
