So, I’ve been neglecting my beloved blog and it makes me sad. There are too many excuses to count, but to sum it up, I’ve been trying to get fit; I’m cycling, taking kick boxing classes and working my way through P90X. I’ve completely cut cupcakes out of my diet (a major accomplishment), cut back on sugar and stopped drinking coffee. I’m feeling good! On the flip side of the coin, I’ve been working too hard and typing waaay too much, so I’m trying to cut back on the amount of typing I do when I’m not working. Ergo, no blog and that gives me the blues.
Perhaps I just need to exercise restraint and write less. Write less? I don’t know about that. I’m not known for brevity (which is why I refuse to use Twitter).
So, this mural pretty much sums up what I feel about my slacking on the blog. I quickly snapped this today and had to share. I love the macabre feel and I especially like how the sunlight hits the image before the afternoon shadows consume it. I wish I knew who the artist is, so I’ll have to investigate. It’s been Downtown near gallery row forever.
Oh, by the way, check out the Google Doodle today. Happy Birthday Alexander Calder!
7/22/11 UPDATE The mural is by Os Gemeos, twin brother graff artists who hail from Brazil. Thanks to Hairpik for the positive ID! If you are in L.A. and want to see more Os Gemeos, be sure to check out Art in the Streets at MOCA’s Geffen Contemporary. The exhibit wraps on 8/8/2011.
