WHAT IF THEY REALLY SAID THAT?!? Dialogue Fun with Art…i was bored PART THREE!!


Hello, everyone! Hoping you are all doing well, today, and that you are enduring the remainder of Winter. Spring is almost here; we’re almost there! Soon it will be warm, more flowers will be out, more birds will be flying about, more beach-time will be had and more badly dressed people will be showing too much skin at Walmart. Yay!

Today I have a post on a subject I have not done in a while. It shows a series of artworks and, with captions, I imagine what the subjects could be thinking or saying. It’s something I do just for fun! In the past, I’ve written two earlier posts with the same idea, but using different artworks. 

I admire & respect all of these artists and their artworks, which are dynamic in their own unique ways, yet I like to be humorous about these works…and can do so without being offensive! I hope you enjoy this new post.


A Bar at the Folies-Bergère by Édouard Manet, 1882. 

Bartender silently thinking to herself: “I’m really not in the mood to hear any drunk sob stories, today. I don’t want to hear about all the artists you’ve chilled out with. I don’t want to hear about the time your carriage wrecked. I don’t want to hear about that time you were so inebriated that you climbed up the Arc de Triomphe and you don’t know how the hell you even got up there. Just drink down your absinthe and refrain from talking!”



Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear by Vincent van Gogh, 1889.
Vincent thinking: “Yeah……I really hate that Paul Gaugin guy, but I probably should have paid better attention to my razor-wielding skills. Yup. Messed myself up this time. Good thing I don’t need my ear to paint…I’d be so screwed.”

(Van Gogh used a mirror in painting this, so it is his LEFT ear that’s bandaged, not the right. Read more details by clicking HERE.)

Flaming June by Frederic Leighton, 1895. 

Most uncomfortable sleeping position in the history of people having sleeping positions​.


The Kiss by Gustave Klimt, 1907-1908.

The most uncomfortable kissing position in the history of people kissing.

Campbell’s Soup Cans by Andy Warhol, 1962.

Campbell’s Soup Company says to itself: “Andy Warhol painted our products! We are the COOLEST freakin’ soup on the entire planet.”

SEE ME ON ETSY!: i’ve returned to my etsy shop


Hi, all! If you are reaading this, thank you for visiting my page, again! 

I have so many art posts to publish, but right now I am taking it easy. I will post more in-depth articles, soon! Today, I am posting about my return to my Etsy shop. I’ve re-opened it. This time, I hope to get much more traffic and also buyers of course! I will be adding new works for sale from time to time. These pieces will look fantastic on a wall in your home or in your office. They will look fantastic over a fireplace, as doubles on each side of a French door or hanging anywhere. If you buy a piece, make sure you purchase a frame that is not going to overpower the artowrk itself. You want the art to shine!

How do you like the title of this post, by the way? I couldn;t think of anything else, so I came up with that. Unfortunately my title ideas are not as dynamic as my artistic ideas! 

I hope you will visit my shop! You can visit by CLICKING HERE and also there is a link at the top of this blog page. Thank you!

Above is the screenshot of my Etsy shop as of today. I will be adding more works periodically.

FACE TIME: new drawing alert!


Hi, readers & viewers! I am trying to post as regularly as I can and as my schedule will allow for. I am also doing other art-focused things like contacting art consultants as I search for representation, going to update my RedBubble account (have not used that in a long while) & re-open my Etsy shop online. I also recently FINALLY got on the “Insta-bus”…I now have an Instagram account! So now, at the bottom of my posts, there will be an Instagram link along with my usual Twitter link (I have so many social accounts, now…becoming some sort of social media guru here). I have included my other links (Coroflot, Etsy, ShopVida & Tumblr) at the top of this WordPress blog. No matter what happens, I do not want to put down art. I stick with it! It is an important part of my life that I love and it is one of the things I do to have joy and to shake off some stress.

Lately, I have been creating new works. I want to experiment, add new work to my portfolio and use these works (along with past works) to market myself more. This post shows one of the new works detailing a face (hence the title of this post). It is a drawing (graphite and pen, so far) on paper. I have a big, fat drawing pad (amongst other drawing pads) to fill and so I am going to make the most of it! I was working on this more last night. I still have to add more features & detailing; also do something to the background. An idea for a background is one of an artist’s terrors. It is also one of those points where artist block tends to happen, too. You want to do something that does not overpower the main focus of the work, but you also want it to work WITH the main focus…you also want it to NOT look terrible. I finally mustered up in my mind what I can do with the background. Some sort of weird (because in art, weird can be good) linear (line) work with a great dash of polygon forms (polygonal design is the “Popular Kid” of the art world, now). Some color will be nice, too. I can’t wait to see my ideas spill from my brain and onto this paper. Fun!

Well, I hope you enjoyed this fairly swift post and I hope you will check me out on Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, RedBubble, Etsy and the other 1 billion accounts I have (lol…not really THAT many, but it feels like it)!! Thank you!! 

No title, yet, of course! This shows a couple of the tools I am using! I see I also wrinkled my drawing. Wrinkled, bent paper drives me NUTS! The drawing itself will still finish out great, though!
