Arty Tuesday: Green by Denis

I wasn’t surprised to see that this artist was a modern art theorist. Can you believe this painting is from 1893? It looks mid 20th century to me.

It was such a beautiful day yesterday that I walked the mile to the drugstore (to buy all the allergy meds) and took some photos along the way there and back…

And some less fancy decay...who lets a pumpkin rot on their front steps

Arty Tuesday: Green by Jacoulet & Bloch

20 years and worlds apart…ladies in green dresses.

I know it’s 20 years too early (for the story) but this feels very Cabaret to me…

Arty Tuesday: Green by Botero

What is it about Botero’s animals that I love?

Still Life with Green Soup by Fernando Botero (1972)

I’m pretty sure this round kitty is about to dump the green soup on the floor just because…

Arty Tuesday: Green – Whistler

My mind turns to green when March hits since our short sub-tropical winter is ending and everything is growing.

Variations in Blue and Green by James McNeill Whistler (1868)


Plus now that the carnival season is over, it’s almost time for St. Patrick/St. Anthony parades.
