Today’s painting is from a few years ago. It was great fun to play with the grid.
In life there are keepers. They are items that are so precious and beautiful that their mere presence brings a slice of joy. I don’t know what it is about these little spheres of glass that makes me happy, but they do, and that is why they are “Keepers”.
She is the cool girl, the one everyone wants to hang out with and get their picture taken alongside. At least that’s the way it seems whenever you visit the Louvre. In the midst of one of the largest treasure troves of art in the world, hordes of people cram around this singular image. Today’s painting, Preserved La Gioconda pays homage to the “It girl” from 1503.
Everyone needs a little treat once in a while.
Today’s painting pays homage to The Coleman Frog. The Coleman frog was a frog of mythic proportions, which I remember encountering on a trip to the York Sunbury Museum.
The ocean has been a place of treasure for as long as it has existed. From its mysterious depths come all kinds of wonders. In today’s painting Ocean Haul a number of these valuables have been collected.
Today’s painting is a painting of my daughter’s baby shoes. The painting is over a few years old, and my daughter has long since outgrown this particular pair of footwear. Edouard Manet did a painting called Flowers in a Crystal Vase, and this is kind of my version of that theme. Manet’s version was of real flowers, and I presume real crystal, mine not as much.
