Feeling Silly Posting This ... But Oh What the Heck.

YES, sure I'm feeling silly, but when I found this picture on my computer - I was looking for something else - it made me laugh. At Art in the Pearl over Labor Day weekend, I saw these in a downtown Portland store window.
Did you ever see such a thing? Remember, laughter can keep you healthy!
I have been telling you of my travels and adventures, but I sure haven't been posting much art lately. I found this picture of a journal page I didn't have the nerve to post, but suddenly I find I do have the nerve to show it to you. Prepare yourself for nudity. I was looking at (insert famous artist's name here)'s famous painting and decided to do my own interpretation of it. What I got wasn't quite what I expected, but it was fun.
Let's see ... what else has been going on? Work. Eating. Yoga. A little yard work. I made an apple crisp. That's about it. Trying to finish up a newsletter for Valley Art, so I've been writing.
I will leave you with this one shot, taken with a digital camera through the lens of a very old Ansco "Rediflex" camera. My pal, JoAnn, told me about this. She was first to do this and I was so impressed I had to get an old camera right away. I apologize if I'm repeating myself and you've heard about this before. Here's the picture and then I'm saying good night - femminismo
p.s. Oh, wait. I "fixed" this old clock photo in Photoshop and I want to remind you that time is running out on our candidates and state measures and local political races and the hour is close upon us when it will be time to vote. I hope you are registered and will vote on November 4! I know I will.

Love the photos, the anti monkey butt powder looks interesting and what I couldn't do with those cogs in the clock. Thanks for visiting and your kind comments.

My computer has been on the fritz for a while. I had a lot of reading to do to catch up on your blog. Great pictures, stories, etc. I remember Paula. I went to school with a younger brother of hers. Mark, if I am correct.

Keep up the excellent work, sis.

Love ya! Jen

Oh my gosh, that camera work you did -- the new and the old -- was most excellent! It came very close to bringing me back to reality after being shot into outer space from laughing so hard at the Anti Monkey Butt.

Gorgeous journaling you did there.
Have a good rest of week.
