A present for me.
A few days ago those of you who read my sister Merle's blog may recall
that she mentioned having bought a gift for her brother... thats me...
It arrived this morning and it is a lovely image of Marilyn Monroe, it is
an image set in a block of clear plastic complete with colored lighting,
it depicts that most famous pose of Marilyn's standing on the grid of
the subway with her dress blowing around her hips as the train went
through below her.
This is the gift in question posed here in front of one of the many pictures
of Marilyn that I have it was quite hard to photograph, if I used flash it
washed the image out and if I used no flash the image was dark and often
blurred by camera movement.
The other shrine to Marilyn is in a spare bedroom.
These other pictures are in response to a post that Robyn (Kat's Cradle)
did about what adorns your walls, this group in the dining room includes
photos of my Dad and Step mother and my ex, Julie.
This is the very first of my Son Marcus' paintings, he has experimented
with many different styles but this and the next one are my favorites.
This is a tapestry that Julie did for my Dad many years ago, his love of
horses was the inspiration for this.
These are "bark paintings of two of my favorite Country Music Artists
which were done by a friend here in Gympie.
A glazed plaque of a vase of daisies that I like.
A picture of the "Duke" that adorns my living room wall along with the
previous two pictures.
A pottery hanging vase filled with imitation daises.
