Fellow blogger Granny Annie at Fools Rush In has been participating in a 29 Faces Challange where you draw a face a day for February. I think it would behoove you to check out her work.

Since I'm on my own this weekend, I thought I'd look for some of my drawings from the past... back before marriage and kids, back before social media, back when I had time to myself and I found this assignment for my Humanities class. We were tasked to take a famous painting, copy it, and then write a paper about the artist's intention.

This is Mastisse's The Dance:

And this is my reproduction of Matisse's The Dance:

I've always enjoyed Fauvism, but I chose this painting because I had procrastinated myself out of doing a more realistic and detailed drawing. I would have much preferred copying something like "Lamentation Over The Dead Christ" in pencil, or "Prayer Hands" because I was more comfortable drawing detailed work in pencil and/or charcoal, but they weren't in the textbook so I picked an easy alternative: Nekkid people dancing around.

Believe me, I have grown since those college days.

Live Long And Prosper

One year ago today, Leonard Nimoy, who played Star Fleet officer Mister Spock, passed. I can't think of a better tribute than to pass these wonderfully Vulcan quotes today:

10 Spock Quotes That Took Us Where No One Has Gone Before

I can't believe it's been a year :(

Poor Plant

I was gifted this orchid by a very sweet neighbor, but she doesn't know that I'm a serial plant killer...

Oh the humanity.

This poor plant will be my next victim... and I can't stop... I'm a lousy plant person. Help me... help.

And The Babies?

Yeah. We just spent $420 on Missy Moo's vet bill this week.

In case you're worried, she's back to her old self again. Thank goodness.

I guess some animals are better than others.

Do you agree with what is being said about your state?

I can't disagree with Florida's assessment.

Loo Class Warfare

Had to decompress from this weekend's deeply disturbing politics...

CNN Anchor Gets $100K Private Toilet As Company Slashes Jobs

Suppose you're doing a live four hour news show that starts at 6 am ET and you only have a 2 1/2 minute bathroom break in which to run down the hall and travel to a different floor to reach the nearest restroom. I think you'd want something closer, too.

Islam: The Jinn Is Out Of The Bottle

I believe this is the most important paragraph:

John Griffing writes, "Western leaders are aiding and abetting this insanity with a consistency and single-mindedness of purpose that can only be explained in one way: they must think they have something to gain from the chaos created by this crisis."

Food for thought when you vote this November.

[The BLOG note: Hat tip to John Griffing for the word, "Pigslam".]
