Seurat’s painting “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” reminds me of spring…it snowed pretty steady all night, and most of the day today. If someone were spray paint the glass panes of my window white I probably wouldn’t notice. Thats what you see when you look out…just white.
So I wanted to bring some spring into my home !I bought flowers and a plant at Trader Joe’s today! I love that place. The food is so inexpensive, I feel like I’m playing some weird game with myself when I shop there… Lets see how much food I can toss in the cart and try brake over the $100 dollar mark. Today I only hit $70, that place is so damn cheap. My cupboards/freezer are so full! I always feel like I robbed the store. I like to buy pre made frozen food for the freezer for my lazy days?( I know how to cook I swear!) I just throw any old thing in the cart when i’m in that section. I don’t even look half the time. I haven’t found anything gross yet. Thats how I discovered Cowgirl bark its white chocolate with cranberries, pieces of ginger snaps,pretzels, peanuts ,almonds, and I think pieces of rice cake…addictive! I would never in my right mind play this sick game in a another grocery store, because the clerk at the register would have to take items out so I could pay the bill… and then I would have to slink out of there in embarrassment ! lol I don’t have the bank account for that game! Any how here is Todays Prince & The Original Seurat Painting!
Here is my cat Betty, some flowers i bought, and a lovely orchid from Trader Joe’s! (The cat is not from Trader Joe’s)
I really liked the way my Norman Rockwell Prince came out on Sunday, so I wanted to do another famous work of art today. So today I did my version of Klimt’s “The Kiss”. Its fun studying the artwork while working on a piece there are a lot of details you miss and do not appreciate. I love the hands in this painting…thats what captures the love for me!
So here is my version with Prince & also Klimts!
also yesterday I did a Harry Potter Quidditch Prince.
I finally setup a dedicated website for the Prince project, it can be viewed www.365daysofprince.com. The website is still at a pretty rinky dink stage, but I will mess with the new website later this week and get it looking in top shape. I will be forming phase two of 365 days of Prince (the secret phase to be revealed at a later date) for the next couple of months!
Hi Everyone! So Yesterday my friend Shannon requested a Nutcracker version of Prince. Shannon and I went to catholic all girl school together back in the day woooo! So of course I did a nutcracker version of Prince for her! I hope you all like it, also if anyone else has any requests please feel free to drop me a line! I usually do most requests, unless you want me to draw Prince as a cannibal or something. Also Today is my friend Josh’s birthday! Happy Birthday Josh!!! Josh and I were having a couple of drinks one night and Josh blurted out “You should draw Prince every day for a year!” I am pretty sure I responded “Thats crazy, no way!” Anyways here I am on day Two Hundred and Ninety One….thanks Josh, I think. Ha ha ha
Here is a photo from high school. I am in the second row with two long braids (I have no idea why my pockets are turned out). Shannon is the pretty blonde in the back row with her shades on! Hi Shannon!
Here is a video of Josh that I have been holding onto for future embarrassment purposes, now seems like a good time to cash it in! Josh was trying to do a submission tape for Foxes Utopia! Happy Birthday Josh!!! Utopia you missed out!!!
Its been nice to have a couple days off, I’m back to work on Monday!!! I have been using the time to organize my living space. When you live in a loft all you ever do is move things from one space to another. It just never looks organized! I’m a virgo, thats simply not going to work. Virgo’s are born to clean and put things away…little piles of things with no home are our kryptonite! We purchased some anti mess devices, and we will put them together today! So excited! Never been so excited to put panties into cubes until today! 🙂
Merry Christmas everyone ! Sorry theses posts are after the fact ! I had a great holiday with my family ! I received all new bedding ,lots of clothes (which I REALLY needed), & awesome le creuset cookware, my favorite kind! My love and I had dinner with my mother on Christmas eve. My mom went all out a spiral ham, shrimp cocktail, baked stuffed shrimp, & lasagna! Christmas day I spent with my Father & his wife Gail They also went all out! We had steak, seafood bisque, more baked stuffed shrimp, and baked potatoes! Spending time with my family was so great! For the past three years I had worked a job that didn’t allow me to have any time with my family on the holidays. This year was also my first christmas with my boyfriend Kurt, so I feel very blessed. I hope you all had a christmas as blessed as mine was! So today I will take part in the tradition of returning gifts at the jam packed mall. Wish me luck, and pray I don’t get trampled!!!
Last night I went to La Salette Shrine with a group of friends. La Salette is a Shrine in Attleborro MA that the totally deck out with lights. When you are pulling up to the Shrine there is no way you can miss it the lights can be seen from a distance! My friend Xander texted me when I pulled up to let me know “they were waiting for me where doves cry”! I found them standing under a tree decks out in dove shaped lights, awesome night!
When I was a kid my mom would always put my gloves on after I was loaded into my snowsuit. My snow suit was pretty much like the one Ralphies brother was forced to wear in “A Christmas Story”. I alway wondered as a child how I would get my mittens on without my mom, when I became an adult and lived on my own. I would waddle at full speed away from the neighbor kids who always wanted to pelt me with snow balls…good times!!!
