Sorry


I was sorry to have missed the past two weeks of IF.
We went to Florence then drove to Lerici .
The most beautiful place we visited was the Cinque Terre
The drive to the first town was a bit harrowing but the landscape was dazzling.

This zebra was to be the subject of my Fat entry, but I didn't have time to finish it before we left. He started out as a fat zebra standing in front of a liposuction clinic. Well, since I had already started this picture, I thought I could adapt it to this week's topic. I guess the zebra is sorry that he didn't get to star in the Fat painting as well as being devastated that he couldn't appear as a winged zebra angel for the following week.

Acrylic on board.

I adore the cinque terre, visited there a few years ago. Love the zebra, I think the blueness in the picture hints at hidden sorrows...nice contrasts with the brighter colours.

Please call me a GIRL!!!!
A few weeks ago I got into a heated discussion with a fellow gay male. His only response to my witty retorts was "You are such a GIRL". I kept saying "THANK YOU!" and he never got it!

A few years ago I volunteered working with second grade students helping them with reading and math skills. One day there was a big fuss made over one student calling another student a "GIRL". My respsonse was "Wow! Girls are wonderful, powerful, kind, funny, friendly and amazing, you can call me a girl anytime!!!" The second graders got it. From that point on being called a girl in that classroom was considered a compliment.

I am a gay male who NEVER thinks the word GIRL is an insult. Too bad Aravosis doesn't get it.

I love your artwork-so very unique. I don't blame that amazing looking zebra for being dissapointed in missing two submissions, but he's the star today. Beautiful!

well i guess if you had to miss IF for Italy I certainly can't b;ame you!!! Some of those roads and bridges and drives are a bit harrowing in Italy but well worth the jangled nerves! Your art is beautiful as always and welcome home!!!

Love the blue stipes on the Zebra and the perspective is Kool.

I'm never sorry to see that zebra show up. Reminds me of that bath he got several months back... one of my favorites. I see that here he is a blue-striped critter... sad and sorrowful. But beautiful.

Your artwork is beautiful - the colors are so vivid and luminous; the perspective, the composition, all of it really, is just lovely. I'm so glad to have found your blog.

Beautiful piece! Amazing how geniuses think alike...I did a piece last year with a colorful zebra, a checkerboard floor and the moon. Go here to see it.
