Just a quick post to fill in some blanks and tie up loose ends. Several people asked for some more information on the painting that was shown in my last Face-down Tuesday shot, so here it is.
It's a large pointillism painting by my grandfather, Andrew Geller. He painted this for my wedding present nearly 20 years. Yes, I got married when I was 12. It's true. The marriage only lasted about 13 years (who really knows what they want at 12?) but the painting remains. (And so does another huge portrait of me, my ex and my very first house rabbit that was named Corduroy.... that one does NOT hang above any mantle, needless to say...) There are all kinds of secret hidden things going on in this painting, including my grandfather's not so subtle self-portrait in the clouds.
Anyhoo, I am very lucky to have many, many wonderful works of art by both of my grandparents. With the passing of my grandmother last Summer and the declining health of my grandfather they take on new, deeper levels of meaning.
I wanted to thank everyone who participated in my blog link exchange! And if you haven't, please feel free to check it out and see if it is something you would like to do. I apologize to anyone who I may have missed that has been linking to me for a while. I try to tell by my stats who links to me and where people are coming from but I can't always see everything. So please let me know if I have missed you and I will add you right away.
In other news... I spent part of today playing with some colored porcelain. That was fun! Can't wait to see how it looks fired. The lighter clay on the left is lavender and the other is teal, obviously. It felt like I was playing with Play Doh today. A nice break from stuffy, snobby, grown-up white porcelain.
And finally I wanted to share this cute little pair of earrings with you. They make me happy in this wonderful pistachio green glaze. :)
