Odds and Sods

>I’ve spent this weekend travelling (one and a half hour wait on a freezing platform, thank you Irish Rail) and working while sick, so I’m a little bit burnt out and uninspired.  I’m going on an enforced blog hiatus (I’m away from my computer and photos and such) and I’ll be back on Thursday, hopefully reinvigorated by some family get togethers, cups of tea and plates of shortbread.  Ok, ok, I’m going to stop moaning… now. Here’s a few bits that are looking mighty good to feverish ol’ me at the moment.

This is my favorite Christmas song. When the horns come in…

My new shoes. They are fakey fake fake Miu Mius but they rock my socks. Incidentally, I should probably think about wearing socks with them. My toes are still sore from the last time I wore them out.

It’s the End of the World as We Know It

Conor Walton is my favorite Irish artist.  His still lives are amazing, done in the style of the Dutch Masters – exploring similar themes using modern, everyday objects.  Sinister, sexy, funny, amazing.  He’ll be giving a lecture on the aforementioned Dutch Masters in the National Gallery on December 14th.  He has stopped painting and taking commissions for the time being due to a personal matter (my mom is on his mailing list, feverishly waiting to snatch up a still life) so this will be a rare opportunity to interact with a great artist.

Have a great week everyone.  Hope it’s a festive one!

  2. >That image is great! I had a brief spell in my undergrad when I studied that particular subject matter that artists like to focus on- the whole 'Vanitas' thing capturing death etc. It's so interesting!
