don't be tardy for the party . . .

When I was gathering my food for the party I came across this while googling 'cute food'.  Nowadays - I think it would take me a week to eat all of this icing!!  The colors are so cute - they remind me of one of JM's blue apples!

psssst . . .

Myra:  Tiny have you heard?  Janettmarie has posted apple #99!
Tiny (also answers to Tiny Man or Mr. Tiny):  what's a janettmarie?  what's an apple?  does it taste anything like beef wellington? or bourbon braised barbecue beef bourguignon?

art - why we . . .

In this world of both happiness and angst - it is a sweet delight that we will soon see the 100th apple painting of janettmarie.  Just like a little wonder woman she has taken a single subject and painted it in so many delicious hues and ways.

Janettmarie:  do you remember when and why you chose to paint 100 apples?  How do you feel upon completing this task?  It is certainly inspiring to see one set a goal that brings delight to many.

So now the question is - what will you do after painting 100 apples?  Will you paint 100 more?  I'm sure that you have - or will invent -many new ways to portray this - many colored - lip smakin' - doctor keepin' away snack. 

And so finally I ponder - it's been 100 - will JM finally name one of her little apple paintings after me?  Will she loan me some money from her apple painting sales?  Will she give me a percent of her salary when they make a movie with - oh I don't know - julia roberts as janettemarie - angelique jolie as martine - jennifer lopez as bonnie heather - what's her name from that movie 'Speed' as catherine - halle berry as carol blackburn - chuck berry as myra anderson . . . well . . . will she?

janettmarie 92 apples!

These are some of the apples janettmarie painted around the time I first met her.  They inspired my block buster film 'apples - the movie'.  For those of you who missed this academy award winner I will re-post it soon!

pan in the can?

The name of this artist is Stephen Pan.  His artwork has helped me to understand why I want to paint the ballet.  I love the way he renders the human figure in paint.  I love his delicate strokes of light and dark that convey the life - the warmth - the softness of her skin.   What I would like to paint is the sweetness, the loveliness,  the cuteness of the human figure - especially the ballerina in her tutu.  I've done some paintings where I have tried to paint cute - delicate - soft . . . I would say that I have gone from point a to point b - will I make it to z?  we shall see!

ballerina colors for carol . . .

As you know . . . I want to become one of the great painters of the ballet.  There was a story on the news the other day about homeless people who were given an opportunity to paint.  I believe that a vacant building was converted to an art studio.  The artists' works were very, very beautiful!  There were beautiful portraits, landscapes, still life, ocean scenes and what's this . . . someone there was a great painter of the ballet! AaRRGH!  (I'm jealous of all of the great painters of the ballet).  Back to work!
