ESG: Spread some Art! profile decoration
For Love and Country by David Lozeau
I've always loved Day of the Dead, and I think David does such quirky renditions!
Spread some Art!
This is one of my favourite paintings!
This painting is called The poor poet by the German painter Carl Spitzweg
I went to a school that was named after Spitzweg and his paintings were omnipresent! I still like to look at this one though, it's somehow really calming. Like, he might be obviously poor, but he still finds joy in writing and reading. I like that.
Hi Marika! This is my swap for the ESG: Spread some Art! profile decoration swap. :-)
I hope you will like this editorial cartoon - drawn by David Horsey - that I love with all my heart:
To truly see it - full-size, or as large as is possible to find it on the internet - please click this link. This larger image of it is found on a blog post. :-)
I don't remember how I first discovered this bit of art (it was over 10 years ago, after all), but I do remember that I so loved it that I bought a print of it after I saw it! I have that print. . .somewhere. I knew exactly where it was when I lived in Seattle, but since moving to Tucson. . . ??? Â¯\(ãƒ„)/Â¯
Anyway, I hope you'll enjoy this little bit of art that I so love! :-)
My favorite "panel" is "the snow one" with the guy going, "Honey, there's an inch of snow! If I never see you again, tell the children I loved them!" This was sooo true when I lived in Seattle. Just a little snow and the city shut down! It was maddening. But also fun! I greatly enjoyed my two-mile walk to work because the buses weren't running. ;-)
Thanks and all the best!
Jen (reader44ever) :-)
Marika, your Snowflake is adorable!!! And hearing that such an adorable kitty is not cuddly and is instead rude? I think that is pretty fabulous. :-)
Thank you so much for sharing your "Show us your pets!" swap with me! â¤
