Final flag post for the month…

Flag by Howard Finster (1991)

So much sadness out in the world…

Sometimes a little Adele with a New Orleans Bounce beat is what you need to get through the day.

Arty Tuesday: Flags – Boshier

I love discovering new artists while researching my monthly topics…

Flag by Derek Boshier

There isn’t a year on this piece and I didn’t find it listed on Boshier’s website but obviously it has to be fairly recent.

Happy Bastille Day which like most things is celebrated here in New Orleans…and I’m continuing my flag theme.

Arty 4th!

Have a bonus art post for Independence Day here in the US. While I’m not always a rah-rah America first, kind of person. I do appreciate the nation into which I was born.

Flag by Leo Villareal (2010)

Hope y’all are all having fun!

Arty Tuesday – Advertisements by Kirchner & Haring

Today’s advertisements are all about that evil weed. Who could resist smoking after seeing these pieces from 1900 and 1987.


Cigarettes of the World – Miss Edith by Raphael Kirchner (1900)

Cigarettes of the World – A’Ala by Raphael Kirchner (1900)

Cigarettes of the World – Zariza by Raphael Kirchner (1900)

Cigarettes of the World – Khe Di Va by Raphael Kirchner (1900)

Cigarettes of the World – Musette by Raphael Kirchner (1900)

And finally for a more modern take (although I think the cigarettes are sort of french fry looking…or maybe I’m just hungry).
