Here are a few things Lavender has to say about the great world of art history...
Lavender definately thinks that Mona is smiling. "Yes, she IS smiling... she's not sad." And she also asked if this was a picture of me... Wha What???
Marsden Harltey paintings look like toys...
and this one by MacDonald-Wright she likes - when you ask her why she will say "Because she sees lots of things... yes." - personally I have always been super creeped out by this, but what do I know... eeks.
And the ol' 'Lucky Strike' has lots of shapes. She likes that one too.
But, 'The Blue Clown'... not so much she says. (Smart girl... Walt Kuhn painted all these super creepy clowns - all parents should take a look at these so they don't make the dreaded "clowns are soo fun, let's have one at little Billy's birthday mistake")
To become truly immortal, a work of art must escape all human limits: logic and common sense will only interfere. But once these barriers are broken, it will enter the realms of childhood visions and dreams.
So, you wanna know about me... I have just discovered kittens.. I love them and I make the cutest Meow of all time. I love to have countless books read to me. I am fearless, I love to test the waters, push the limits. And my favorite word and question of all time is WHY!!!

Quote of the week: I'm puttin' on my dancin' shoes, mom!
The chaos of the everyday with its never ending not enough hours in the dayness has pushed me back to something I once knew and practiced daily... yoga. I have a love and hate relationship with this discipline.... perhaps, it is because it is just that - discipline.
THE READING CORNER
Tea with Sister Anna is a book that I longed and longed for at every trip to Rock Point Books... and now it's finally mine! I love it... it's a vacation every time I crack it open! Thanks, Sister Anna!
