Johannes_Vermeer – Het_melkmeisje_
The Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer painted THE MILKMAID around 1658.
Though her primary job was assisting in the care of teh dairy cattle, I like to think that she was equally adept at manning the ovens of the manor.
A cold glass of milk and a freshly baked, just-from-the -oven, slathered in homemade butter … Yum!!

Growing up, I thought I knew everything there was about buying jeans for myself.
Now, there seems to be a ‘science’ about this same task.
Growing up, I knew that Levis fit me better than Wrangler… but Levis were sometimes three times more expensive.
Now, I have to be aware of Ulta-Stretch Fit Skinny jeans and EZY Skinny Fit … Why?
Then there are the Slim Fit and the Slim Fit Stretch jeans … Again, why?
Finally, sanity has been kept with Regular Fit and Wide Fit. Thanks be to Zeus! (or whichever of the gods the jean manufactures teem as thier personal muse).
And don’t even get me started on the colors … Dark Indigo, Light Wash Blue, Stone Washed, Whisker Fades, Train Track Fades, Honeycomb Fade, Stack Fades … I need to get Crayola Crayons to bring back teh color “jean”!!!

THE TEACHER’S DESK
THE TEACHER’S DESK was painted by Jeff Conway.
I remember desks similar to this one in my teacher’s classrooms…
My desk was from the computer-age, so a computer was always front-and-center (actually, the computer was usually to the left). I had a
instead of the large golden bell.

Absinthe Drinker by Pablo Picasso
WHAT’LL IT BE?
Sitting by yourself, alone at a table … drowning your sorrows is not likely ever a good thing.
But then, I am not too sure that sitting with 100 people at a party drowning your sorrows is a good thing either.
I never drink along. My pup, a long-time companion of 15+ years, is always with me.

Edward Hopper: Automat
DOES THE WORLD GIVE A CARE?
Edward Hopper is one of the most famous painters of the twentieth century. Many of his paintings evoke sentiments of the realism of rural life … and sometimes its inherent loneliness.

The Scream by Edvard Munch
THE SCREAM by Edvard Munch is one of my favorite pieces of art.
It is so simplistic in is personification of pure anguish.
The painting is said to be an autobiographical work. It was painted after two of Munch’s friends left him by himself on a walk.

STOP MAKING STUPID PEOPLE FAMOUS Painting by Rusta Zali
STOP MAKING STUPID PEOPLE FAMOUS
STOP MAKING STUPID PEOPLE FAMOUS is a painting by Rusta Zali.
I knew nothing at all about Mr. Zali before embarking on my new DAILY ADDICTION painting quest.
I am not at all sure ‘the who’ Mr. Zali might have been referring to in his art piece, but I could fill in some personal requests…
Rusta Zali appears on a few googled art sites, but he is still too new to even be in Wikipedia.
