Me in art

Sheria has an excellent and thoughtful journal--Indigo recommended it to me, so I was happy to check it out, and Indigo was right! Sheria had an entry today about her friend Marc, who did a really neat thing with one of her pictures. I looked at what he did, and I thought it was so cool! He invited anyone to submit a picture, so I thought, "What the heck?," and sent him a note with my picture--the one on the left. Look what he did!

       

He chose two Tissot paintings, and he explained that my smiling face is very "modern," and hard to fit into classical paintings, so in the above picture, my face is very tiny. I don't care, I think it's so fun and cool! I thanked him and said that it's true, I'm usually a fairly "smiley" person. And ooo, my dress is fabulous! And look at this one:

                                           

I especially love that one. Be sure to check out his web site, Thou Art. He will put you or a loved one in a painting, and I'm already thinking of people who would like this. What a great idea!

I thought you would enjoy her. Marc has his own blog as well besides the, "Thou Art" site. If your interested let me know and I'll email a link your way. He's another friend of mine....small world huh?

I think Sheria included Marc's web site, and when I went to that, he had his Thou Art site linked (or maybe he emailed it to me...that was yesterday!). Such fun stuff, and such talent...thanks for passing along the link to me, because it seems that we seem to gravitate to similar people!
