Astounding, priceless expression and blooming too soon
- From the museum visit last Saturday - this rather astounding piece called "Pink Panther." It depicts the film star and sex symbol of the '50s and '60s, Jayne Mansfield, embracing the the cartoon character The Pink Panther. Artist Jeff Koons was sued for copyright infringement for using the Pink Panther's image without permission, but eventually settled out of court.
- There's a lot of lofty description that can be read online about this porcelain sculpture, from a series unveiled in 1988 called "Banality." I just loved the look on The Pink Panther's face. :)
- We've had so much warmish weather in Atlanta, that the flowering trees are beginning to bloom; shown here at The Atlanta History Center's "Swan House." I'm not sure that's a good thing exactly, but it sure was beautiful on a wet Tuesday.
