It was among several artworks on display in the Blue House at the College of Our Lady of the Elms (known in brief as Elms College, but the long name is so marvelous), where I was for most of the day yesterday. It tells you exactly what it wants from you.



(Artist appears to be someone called Cavagnac.)

There were others in a similar style:





Cupcake, cog, hammer, nails, plus sign, gravestone--the poetry of things, arranged.

This painting benefited from assertiveness training

That's wonderful. It is a very bold style, too.

Yeah, and it had just enough idiosyncrasy to not look like, oh, wrapping paper or some other mass-produced graphic design.

I think it helps that I can't tell what the creature in the first painting is, except that it has a lot of personality.

Cupcakes are awesome. Do you have a favorite?


And to answer your question, I haven't, but I will be on the lookout for fresh acorn caps. You are so awesome. Pure magic.

I don't have a favorite! Do you? I think having a good icing really makes a difference.

Hope you find a good acorn cap--then it'll be bottoms up ^_^

I like my mom's spice cupcakes and her german chocolate ones. I used to have them alot when I was younger and then again when B was.

The assertiveness of the first one made me laugh. :) The last one looks like a rebus - I'm sure I'd've puzzled over it fruitlessly for ages, if I'd been at the exhibition.

rebus
Yes, and there was more to it--that's just the center of it. It would be fun to have different people offer to "read" it and see all the different stories you'd get.

So strange to hear her and Alex talking after hearing you talk **about** them both so much.

I like the last song, "Glory Be," best.

I know you've heard her sing before but is this the first time you've heard her speak? Or did I give you the video where she was talking about her trip to Cyprus?

This is the first time i've heard her speak at length. I saw the kickstarter/ indiegogo for her Cyprus trip (supported it!), but I think I just read text there; I didn't see her talking.
