Interesting . . .
I first found out about this crazy street art documentary on ZebraMule's flickr (here). So we watched the movie tonight. The picture below is linked to the documentary website if you'd like a sneak peek or to read more about it.
I must admit, I'm fascinated with street art though I really haven't decided how I feel about it. It's a slippery slope, but so intriguing. And that's not really what the movie is about. The movie took me in a whole different direction than I expected.. Once again "What is Art?" is the question you'll find yourself struggling to answer . . . just not in the way you're probably expecting. A real twist in the nonfiction plot changes everything! (we watched it through Netflix)
And . . .
If you haven't looked through ZebraMule's photostream, you need to! I think Corrine is my new artist idol. I cannot get enough of her work. If you can't either, her website is here.
More on Banksy, my favorite artist from the documentary, can be found here.
I'm so lucky . . .
I won a beautiful print from Verna's Bird Bee and Bloom blog giveaway last month. Oh, it's gorgeous! I'm so proud to own it. Thank you, Verna! Here's a linked picture to the artist that made it, Danita . . .
I had some allowance left over (not really but don't tell hubby) so I indulged in another doll from Sandy Mastroni . . . (picture linked to her store)
This week's self observations . . .
- I use the word "so" entirely too much. I'm as bad about that as my daughter is about using "like".
- I still have way too many moments of insecurity and self defeating thoughts. Sometimes it comes out in my interaction with other people, I get paranoid in a way. (are you saying "Sometimes? How 'bout all the time?") I need a new trick to shoo those thoughts away.
- I feel better when my nails are painted.
