There’s sadness hanging over the holidays this year due to the recent death of my friend Charley. His portraits were featured on this blog Christmas Day, 2014. Of his many wonderful qualities, one I will treasure is he never sued me for using his work without permission.
As evidenced in Charley’s paintings, vibrant color provides an undeniable sense of life and joy. Taking time off from a youtube marathon of old Debbie Reynolds interviews, this Christmas I embellished a magenta Madonna found laying around the apartment. The holy virgin is now displayed in the hallway transom flanked by vintage Radko presidential ornaments. By conspicuously coupling the holidays I can keep the installation up until mid-February. If not longer.
One thought on “Madonna with Blue Balls”
Sorry for your loss, Chris. And I’m really sorry about Brian passing away. I walked past his shop on Polk Street when I was visiting in October. It is now a NAIL PARLOR? I didn’t remain shocked for too long because I got the giggles thinking he would approve of this happening. Happy Belated Christmas!
