I was out this weekend scouring the best paintings and what-nots that the area had to offer. In terms of realism painting, it was kind of disappointing. There were some quirky ones with indoor views that focused mostly on walls and windows out to boring landscape and a guy that did a nice surreal white rabbit from 'Alice in Wonderland', but he wanted too much for what it was. Most of it was the giclee computer generated crud that looks great from say, a football field away. Thinking about blogging friends, I imagined that Mo would appreciate this bizarre sculpture because of his affinity to early morning disturbances.
(All in all, it was a very weak showing for realism / neoclassic subject matter)
On a tangent, tonight I put on the old 'inconspicuous' clothing and went to a disreputable establishment of 'convenience'. In said location, I proceeded to purchase several thousand Texas Lottery tickets in hopes of helping out fun blog friend Girl Interrupted who is awesome, gorgeous, learns Latin at MJenks place, and so perfect (especially if she is reading this).
After filling up two garbage bins with 'scratch off shavings', I couldn't believe my eyes. A winner... 20 USD!!! Not quite the return I had hoped for; maybe some currency contract straddles next month would be better?
Sono andata ad una fiera d'arte di questo fine settimana. La maggior parte delle opere d'arte è stata molto deludente (o troppo costose).
Ehi! Ho anche acquistato un biglietti che hanno vinto... ahahaa
