I woke up this morning in Sunny Marbella (Spain) to discover that I have had 40,000 hits on my blog. This gave me a kick start to write a short blog, even on vacation. I have been intending to share this fun opening of Annemarie Wright's drawings/writings for a couple of weeks. She uses well known portraits but with the simple trick of words she creates a new dimension. The text represents the person in the portrait either by what the person has said or written or what has been written about the person.

Run to buy one, they are actually affordable, about $1,200 each. A lot of them sold already at the opening, but there might still be one left for you?
