Glamour


I was having trouble coming up with a glamourous idea until I found
that glamour can also be a verb.

v : cast a spell over or put a hex on someone or something

This lemur cast a spell upon the bathroom and oversized fruits have magically appeared. (Lemurs are vegetarian, consuming leaves and fruit.)
Ring-tailed lemurs live in groups of five to thirty members. Females, who stay in the group for their entire lives, dominate the group. Males have a social structure that undergoes great upheaval during mating season.

LOVE the oranges and lemons :) There is much to do in a bathroom to appear glamorous; your lemur has the right idea about dieting helping if caught in the spell of what glamour entails! See, you have included both meanings very well indeed :)

Before this week, I never realized that glamour could mean something other than fancy hair-do's and high heels. Your painting is like a vivid dream. I love the colors.

My lemur does that all the time too! Jaimie, I just love how your mind puts these images together! I really like the details in the bathroom (aside from the fruit and the lemur)..the sink, the toilet, the mirror...it makes the scene look so "normal"...guess that's glamour in action:>

Yes, my social structure seems to be in a constant state of upheaval... (sigh). Ahem, I mean, hey, great illustration. Again with the wonderful colors. And some educational text. Tree shrews and lemurs are very close to us on the evolutionary (or intelligent design) tree, you know. And, yes, my wife and I always work at keeping our bathroom as glamorous as can be. Just don't look in right now, please.

I've always liked lemurs. They remind me of a troop of exclamation points. And they definitely cast spells!
