Van Gogh (almost) & I Make It to a Museum!

The one that WASN'T in the MOMA Van Gogh show!

Van Gogh & I...???

Did you guess correctly? I've been hanging out with some interesting guys lately...Dali, Andy Warhol, Van Gogh. Unfortunately, they're all "out of this world."!

Warhol & I

First I painted the pear; then I photographed it; then I ate it; and finally using flickr toys, I converted the photo into a faux Andy Warhol silk screen poster. How's that for getting your money's worth out of a Bosc pear on sale!

Cezanne & I

Just thought I'd see what would happen if Cezanne painted really BIG! (With my help, of course). This is what I do when I'm postponing stuff I should really be washing the kitchen floor!

How a Starving Artist Survives

1. Buy Bosc pears because they are on sale
2. Photograph them
3. Paint & draw them
4. Eat them!
5. And if you can sell any of the photos, or paintings,
6. Use the proceeds to buy more pears!
