Not playing fair

I told my husband I would really love a painting by artist Michelle Armas for Valentines Day. My desire to own one of her colorful abstracts was instant and visceral.

Zena (and consequently, already sold)

He replied with, "So, I guess you no longer want this?"
He clearly does not understand the rules of this game...

Her art is really beautiful, I especially like the Buster Keaton. Maybe you can talk your husband into both :o)

So can relate- I was shopping today and saw two mink pillows that I sooo wanted to which he says, it wouldn't be a surprise- totalgame changer since I literally bought and wrapped my own x-mas presents this year (to be fair he was sick but I literally always know what I'm getting.) So today, I actually see something I want, show him, make it easy, and he says no- MEN!!!! I adore Michelle's artwork- so stunning. My fingers are tightly crossed hoping that he smartens up and gets you both:)

Ha! Yes. Not fair. Not what you meant at all. Clearly!

Michelle is so damn talented. My friend Susie of Eye Spy just got one of her paintings and it is DAZZLING.

I love all her paintings! Stunning!

P.S. I love this... said...

Wow that piece is gorgeous and now I have to have it, well I wish I could have it. Why? Because my name is Zena. =)

I agree, Ben is not being fair! I hope you all are having a great weekend, it is actually a very nice day here today. I should be raking some leaves or something, but I think I will just stick with blogging!

Tell Ben hello for me, Nicole

Oh God,

Men are so practical.
The painting is jawdropping.
But I must also admit that since we got our mega-Mac this past black Friday, which its huge screen, blogging has become bliss.
I do hope Ben goes in for a twofer ;)
Cheers, Alcira

AHAHA! Men, Here is an idea. Get the mac, then use Zena as a screen saver until you get a commission! I always negotiate the price or commissions for just about anyone, so you will get to have your cake and eat it too!
