You’re Driving Me Nuts

There is just something so crazy funny about this Simpsons’ painting. 


Homer is mad as h*ll and has Bart by throat!


Bart is screaming for help.


It so funny how art imitates life. 


Where people drive others $%#&^*)* crazy. 


And the other person just wants to wring their freakin’ neck. 


Yeah, this never really happens. 😉

Flowers and Bird

Just wanted to share this beautiful painting from Reuben in our synagogue.

I love the plethora of colorful flowers in the vase.  

The sweet bird with it.

The verdant green background. 

The unique etched wood frame. 

Very happy…and all the world is okay.  😉

Great Spider-Man

Love this painting of Spider-Man.


Like so many things, this superhero is better in colors (and not just red)!


He’s also got two spiders on his chest, and as we know, two are better than one. 


I also appreciate how he stares down evil with the tilt of the head and those over-sized eyes. 


There is still plenty of evil in this world, and we need every superhero we can find to vanquish it!  😉

Three Ladies

Just a beautiful artist plate that I picked up in Israel. 

Loved the colors and simplicity of this. 

I got a “aged brass” (gold) plate stand for this.

Enjoy looking at this now in our living room and also remembering our wonderful trip, thank G-d. 

Also, I wonder if I know these three ladies from somewhere.  😉

Ship+ In A Bottle

You ever wonder how they build that big ship in that little bottle. 


Someone needs very dexterous hands and a lot of patience to put the pieces through the opening of the bottle and assemble the ship inside. 


But this second grader, Dylan Yasseri, upped the game on this whole concept and imagined a whole beach in the bottle. 


The sand, ocean, sky, birds, crabs, fish, umbrella, and even the shack (snack?) bar!


This is one reason that kids are so awesome–their purity of heart and their endless imaginations make almost anything possible.


The fantasy becomes the reality. 


The colors are magical too here. 


If adults could maintain even half the heart and creativity of our children–oh what a world it could be. 😉
