Foot Medication

Roy Lichtenstein

The Lichtenstein "Still Life" Exhibit at the Gagosian Gallery is just about to close if you still want to go and brighten your day a little.

When we think of still lifes, we think of paintings that have a certain atmosphere or ambience. My still life paintings have none of those qualities, they just have pictures of certain things that are in a still life, like lemons and grapefruits and so forth. It's not meant to have the usual still life meaning.
--Roy Lichtenstein (From Gagosian web site)

I am just about to prepare for my Bachelorette party weekend on an Island in Norway called "Hankø" with 27 wild wonderful Women. Wishing now that I had pampered my nails... In my head I am already dancing all night long.

See you all next week!!
With Love


  1. Interesting- I have never seen that RL-
    I am glad you included the quote- my understanding of still life would not include this painting- I guess if there is a message behind the media or a conscious dissociation then it creates an expansion of the viewers mind.

    That sounds like a lovely place to have a bachelorette party- I would love to see photos of the island-
    27 wild women- I would LOVE to see photos of of that too-
    Have a great day.
