The summer of art

June 26, 2007

Journal, Lauren

It occurs to me that I’d better keep track of how I’m spending my vacation time.  I am a big fan of Jill Connor Browne and her Sweet Potato Queens books, especially when she describes her favorite way to vacation – sitting around with a  big pitcher of margaritas and not doin’ jack.  Ahhh…. the gift of time.

On Monday I did a little shopping and watched a movie.  Today I played a video game – Bloxorz – and got to level 25. In the evening we went to Jazz In June, which you you can read about more on Brad’s site, but before we left, I felt the need to cut up the watermelon that’s been sitting in our fridge for a couple of days.

Let’s hear it for art!  (er, sorta art.)

A dripping, fruity head.

    “Yo! Adrian!”
    It’s a perfect likeness of Rocky Balboa. It’s a Neo-Bohemian masterpiece.

    Yummm -- juicy! Where are the seeds? You have amazing talent!


    • Lauren Said on:

      I only work with seedless medium, unless I’m going for some sort of spotted creature -- leopards, ladybugs, teenagers…

    I can not wait to eat the nose. Oh, and to get an iPhone.


    • Beth Said on:

      I’m surprised you don’t have a running clock on your site for iPhone availability. You’re down to just two days, right?

    I’m speechless! That’s utterly amazing! How did you get the rhine off without smashing the inside? This is funny ’cause I just watched “Encino Man” the other night & your watermelon guy really does look like a frozen Brendan Fraser. Could you make a daschund out of a zucchini?

    Where do you put the Vodka?
