blue

tonight i am going to be at lola's for my nest show .....
it's been hanging a month, but today there is a street party in the neighborhood so we are doing another "opening" .. a half way thing .... a re-nest ...... so wish me luck there tonight ..... 

there is one fresh painting that i haven't shown you yet ... i took it up to lola's yesterday so it'll be in the show .... 

this piece is called "a pair's one pear"
does that make sense?
a pair's one pear .... 
so... the pear is part of a pair ... but we are only seeing one... where's the other half of the pear pair? 

it was a bright cheery blue pear painting ... and then thinking of its other half missing makes it kind of desolate ... gives a blue feeling ... but ... optimist that i am .... i hope the other half is just at the grocery store or something .... coming home soon with some ice cream ...... 

what would you have titled it? how's it make you feel?

Maybe it isn't that one pear is gone...shopping or whatever. Maybe the two...are one. Not lonely; not desolate. 2 become 1.

I hope your re-opening re-nest went well! I'm so happy for you!!

hmmm ... Ruskin, I think. (ok, not very clever) ... makes me feel thoughtful in a mildly pleasant way. :) hopeful, even.

I like this one. Niffty in a sort of "give me a minute by myself" sort of way. Sometimes I just need to be by myself. ...then we can pair up again... :)
