I am a serious serial painter :)
I love the organizing/categorizing/grouping/brainstorming
SO interesting to me is the possibility of meaning when dissimilar but similar objects are brought together.
Peace, love, and we-all-can-work-together sort of thing :)
sandwiches, appetizers, now the latest
It all began at lunch with a girlfriend.
We ordered Bloody Mary's which came without ANY garnish at all!
As politely as I could, for I did not want to hurt the bartender's feelings, I asked for garnish.
(I mean who has ever heard of a bloody mary with out ANY garnish!)
So then our waiter brought ONE wedge of lime!
So then I was like ;-)
I want more garnish!!!
Pleading my case I proclaimed,
I know it doesn't really change the taste of the beverage
but it makes it more FUN for heaven's sake!
It makes it SPECIAL!!
(I am prone to exaggeration)
It makes it more BEAUTIFUL!!
(frequently guilty of using excessive amounts of adjectives)
I mean, don't you out there in the internet, find that sometimes it's the little things,
maybe things thought of as not necessary
done purely for fun or beauty that make things special?
make things special!
Especially in my visually important,
spectrally spectacular world!!
Needless to say we received a plateful of garnishes! :D
All will be in an exhibit here in Atlanta at the end of the month, more info to follow.
Available for purchase now on my online site.
peace love and cheers!!
