Art Talk Tuesday: Monday, Tuesday, Happy Days...

I hope you had an amazing LONG weekend! I actually extended my weekend a little and opted to use a personal day on Friday. I'm so glad I did as it got me ready for our house guest, Goot. Goot is one of Mr. D's frat brothers from UF...and nerdy sidekick. Goot, a.k.a. Lord Bytor is some computer programming evil genius or something. A few years ago Mr. D and I went to visit him at his new house and I was saddened when I saw no art on the walls. I decided that I was going to paint Lord Bytor's dragon, his castle and the Lord himself. The triptych hangs in his Orlando home to this day...and I think it still may be the only art up in the house. Boys.

This is Lord Bytor's dragon. It has to be one of my favorite paintings to date still because it has such a funny story to go with it.

Now I realize that I did not post yesterday so my regular Music Monday went missing. Well, this weekend I downloaded the song, "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen. I first heard it when the SMU women's crew (which I was a member of for all of 10 minutes) made their own video of the song and it went viral. The song is one of the poppy songs that you may hear over and over again allllll summer long. Here's the video, hope you enjoy it.
Well, I hope you have a great start to your week...and I hope you will stop by as the week progresses. I'm already thinking about what to wear tomorrow for Wardrobe Wednesday since the week snuck up on me!!
