Need a Little Artist Humor to Start the New Year?

Visitors to your studio?
Happy New Year and my sincerest wishes for joy and inner peace for you in this coming year.
With all the seriousness of New Year's resolutions, list making, goal setting, and organizing that takes place this weekend, I thought you could use a little artist humor to balance out your day.
While on an artist studio "art walk tour", I spotted this "Eyebrow Movement Analysis" taped to the wall in one of the artist's studios. Funny, yes?

And, while on a brief visit to Key West two weeks ago, we spotted this handsome fellow. We had all gathered to watch the sunset, at the most southern point in the United States.
Where's that green flash?
Now, Key West is know for some laid back craziness and "the Ernest Hemingway six toed cats" but this guy takes the cake or better yet, I think he has dipped those toes into some catnip cake. He was just as calm, cool and collected as could be, taking in the sunset with all the rest of us.
I asked Mr. Boots, my studio cat if he would ever wear such a visor. He said "No way,"Ray Bans are my style"!
Ok, now that you have seen enough of this silliness, go out and make it a great day and don't forget those resolutions you just made!

Hi Karen, Love this silliness! I've been knee deep in planning, goal setting and such, that those eyebrows prodded me to lighten up! Thanks!

Glad to give you a smile!

So, how many times have you seen the green flash? I almost saw it once in Hawaii. After photographing a sunset for 45 minutes, I turned my head just as the flash happened and people erupted in applause!

Karen F. Rose said...

I have never seen it! This was the first time visit to Key West. Guess I'll have to go back and keep looking!

Kathryn said...

What on earth is the green flash??

Karen F. Rose said...

Kathryn, Green flashes and green rays are optical phenomena that occur shortly after sunset or before sunrise, when a green spot is visible, usually for no more than a second or two, above the sun, or a green ray shoots up from the sunset point.

Thanks, I learned something new today!
