It’s warmer here than it’s been for days, but it’s still dreadfully cold.
So I’m compensating with this wonderfully warm painting by Charles Courtney Curran.
Called Lotus Lillies, it was painted in 1888.
According to the National Galleries of Scotland, Curran “places the viewer in a rowing boat, opposite his new bride and her cousin. They are rowing on Lake Eyrie in Ohio, almost engulfed by yellow lotus lilies, which stretch as far as the eye can see.”
Though the effect is unobtrusive, putting the viewer into the boat with the women makes the painting unusually immersive.
What with the warm glow of the sun through the parasol and the lovely serenity of the water, I certainly don’t mind being immersed.
youre not friends if you havent pooped at each others houses
but what if the friend is across the country or in another country?
i made this post over a year ago, and now, in hindsight, i would like to STRONGLY advise against mailing poop to your friend.
