Ladies, Flowers, M.I.A.


for the past few weeks or so my Mom and i have been volunteering in a program i have done a coupla times in the past. it's called "Art Buddies" and it is run by a program called Creatives for Causes headed by Sue Crolick. who, needless to say, is an awesome individual.

i roped my Mom into it this time because we have volunteered together much in the past(Harriet Tubman is where she rolls) plus it is time we get to hang out. so sorta like killing to birds with one stone(though a lot more fun).

before the session i met her and my Aunt at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. they were having this wicked flower show!

so it was basically me and about a thousand much much older ladies all checking out all the flowers amongst all the art. and vice versa.

i love the Institute! i recently moved close by to it.

i probably go there once a month minimum. usually for inspiration or just to bask in the fact so many cool things, many of which are thousands of years old, in my town.

i always spend a few minutes in front of one of my favorites, "Blind Man's Buff" by Max Beckmann.

he is an old school cat, Austrian and was exiled to Holland when the Nazi's were coming down on our asses back in the day. the self portrait hanging in the Chicago Institute is my personal fave.

but there's no point in comparing them i suppose.
