Pink Flamingos

Flamingos (or flamingoes, if you’re so inclined) have got to be one bird that encounters a lot of controversy. Okay, I wouldn’t go that far, but I have this mixed relationship with the pink bird.

There are scads of flamingo-related things out there. That is my first problem. This bird comes in the form of plastic garden accessories and it also resides on countless bags, bedspreads, pool toys, etc. Also, why is a Las Vegas casino the first thing to pop up on a flamingo Google search? Anyway, the plastic garden accessory really gets me. That is like the trailer park grandma in Florida cliche.

‘Nuff said.

But. They are beautiful (pink!) birds with legs NYFW models would kill for. Also, it is super cool they are pink because of their diets (all that shrimp makes ’em rosy!). And their backward bending knees *sighs*. What more can a bird want?

And for a reference pic:

The birds are killing it.

That’s it for now! (At this point, are you wondering what the point of this post is? Me too.)

Goodnight folks 🙂

Hello there!

I thought I’d share one more post before I go on  vacation! (Although I might surprise you with another post before I come back…we’ll see!)

I am really into this lovey-dovey, Valentine’s Day, cutesy, etc. theme in regards to making art! It can be such a cliche, but there’s something to be said about cliches. They are overused because they resonate with people. They’re relatable.

I, of course, love vintage 1950s type photos and fashion, and this seems to fit right in with that. My Pinterest board for art inspiration is filled with vintage photographs and picturesque images. Those times seemed simpler. And I like simple.

Also, just fyi, we got about SIX inches of snow last night! I love it. My sister and I built a snowman (actually snow-grandma) and it was so much fun 🙂 Haven’t done that in years!

Here is a picture, just because:

She’s quite chic, I know.

Hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow!

P.S. I sold my first art print on Etsy!! I was so ecstatic! Thank you Gwen for buying my print 😉
