Today in Art News

So the Princess finally decided to decorate her office after months of looking at mostly bare walls and blah furniture. She bought a silk tree shrub and a few autumn landscapes for the walls...

... and then it happened. What always happens once you finally make a decision: you find that perfect something you were looking for.

If that isn't the quintessential office picture, we don't know what would be. Perhaps this little gem will come up for sale:


We confess that we were oddly obsessed by quite taken with the Sumo Chipmonk and the giraffes loitering in the background. Of course it might be safer to stick to a more well known artist:


Still, when it comes to making a statement it's hard to beat The Biting Pear of Salamanca. Feel free to suggest your favorite object d'art in the comments section.

It's Friday, peoples.

Update: Sweet. Merciful. God.


I knew I should not have gotten out of bed this morning.

I'm partial to these for the office. I actually have a print of l'Elephant in my family room.



Melting Clock

Since I can't embed images in Comments....

The melting clock seems seriously a propos to the cube fields.

A lot of food for thought in that pear saying "cheese" for the chipmunk. I picture people wandering into your office saying, "Cassandra, I need you to . . . wait . . . why is the chipmunk wearing . . ." and drifting off into a reverie.

Add a Captain America poster, and you're there. Who's to say whether you're being ironic?

Criminee, just when I thought I had enough "goosing" today. The first was when I was out stuccoing the horse house. I was squatting/kneeling down, shirt rides up, jeans ride down and the inevitable happens. Exposed, ahem, upper tuckus. Unbeknownst to me the trusty steed was right behind me. That blast of air down the back as he blew his lips was a real jump up and do the horsetown boogy.

This to Brutus?

Is the "A" on Barky's helmet for "Anarchy"?

"Actually, MM it's his Asshat."

Considerin' the wings on that thing, I reckon it goes a long way t'wards explainin' many of his facial expressions.

I was always partial to "Grand Piano Being Sodomized by a Bust of Voltaire" by Dali. It is just so absurdly funny.
