Take a Right at the Motherwell…

Why, it’s gallery 338 in the St. Louis Art Museum. Looking into gallery 337. You know… just in case anyone was curious. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Will Hunting: “You paint that?”

Sean Maguire: “Yeah. You paint?”

Will Hunting: “Nuh-uh.

Sean Maguire: “Do you sculpt?”

Will Hunting: “No.”

Sean Maguire: ” Like art? Do you like music?”

Will Hunting: “It’s a real piece of s**t.”

Sean Maguire: “Oh. Well, tell me what you really think.”

Forces

This is a fairly intense image, but life isn’t only about tea sipping birds… right? That wouldn’t be honest, somehow. Anyway, I’ll find something milder for the big Thursday show. Also, I’ve forgotten any/all specifics about the above equations, but they relate to force(s) somehow… I think. And there are a few deltas thrown in. Which is always fun.

Chuckie: “So this is… this is a Harvard bar, huh? I thought there’d be like equations and s*** on the walls. “

Hartford M.E. Church

When I came across this striking church in rural Illinois (est. 1876) I was tempted to grab some overalls and a pitchfork and rock an  American Gothic pose. Maybe next time. Have a great weekend everyone!

Pssst… just between you and me I removed two ‘contemporary’ basement windows and elongated the whole building a bit, etc. Don’t tell anybody, okay?

A Spot of Tea

So… don’t tell anybody, but… just between you and me… I think tea is kinda for the birds. Coke me, bro!

Dennis Reynolds: “Your voice needs to come off as elegant as your clothing… okay? So… try this, ‘would you like a spot of tea’? You, ‘yeeeEEEeeesssSSSss’!”

Mac McDonald: “Would you like a spot of tea? YeeEEeessSSss!”

Dennis Reynolds: “Draw it out more.”

Mac McDonald: “Draw it out more than that? More like… YeeeEEEeeesssSSSsss!”

Nets

Here’s an old photo of ‘Fishtown’, Leland, Michigan. I sure wish I could go back in time and throw a little more background out of focus (if hindsight is 20/20 this is one time it wouldn’t hurt to be a bit blurrier). Oh well. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Kip: “It’s a time machine, Napoleon. We bought it online. “

Napoleon Dynamite: “Yeah, right. “

Kip: “It works, Napoleon. You don’t even know.”

Japanese Garden

Here’s a photo from the Japanese Garden at the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Which means it must be time for a little something from an old stand-by / one of my all time favorite films: ‘Load up the random Lost in Translation quote! AND… SCENE!’

Kelly: “John, John. You are my favorite photographer. “

John: “Ohhh… “

Kelly: “No. You are! I only want you to shoot me. It’s true! Oh my God… I have the worst B.O. right now, I’m sorry!”
