life is but a glean...

artwork by louis pons

thanks to my friend, randel plowman, i finally rented and watched the movie he suggested months ago: 'the gleaners and i.' it's a completely charming documentary - one i highly recommend to everyone, especially those who recognize and appreciate the beauty and worth in ALL things.

yea! hope you like... :)

and don't forget to catch the follow up movie on the disc (the gleaners and i part 2) i almost overlooked it. it was made 2 years after the first with updates on most of the people in the film.

art, it's truly the bee's knees
Got a fab postal card from u2day. thanks chicky for being my faithful friend, I so love you!

So, just when I think I know almost every artist's work who ever lived. . . you throw me a new (old) one. Coolio. For some reason, the artwork you posted reminds me a lot of WIlliam Lobdell's work here in St. Louis--I dunno if you ever saw his work before you ran away to L.A. His building pieces are really cool http://www.williamlobdellartsite.com/My_Homepage_Files/Page4.html, but you can look at the other stuff, too. Difficult to photograph in that you can't begin to tell from the image that all of the components of each piece are comprised of found items/detritus, soda can pull tabs, washers, etc...
adoringly,

Re: art, it's truly the bee's knees
oooooh, thank you, dear robin!
really like lobdell's work....never heard of him, sorry to say. wish i could've seen his constructions up close (when i lived 'back east' as chuck always says)....they're positively dream like! he must have quite the cult following...

and you've been spoiling me rotten with all your super-fab postally goodness! i love you 2!!!!
