Two-for-Tuesday: “Playing for Tips” Art

Hello readers – It is #twosday and I have some Jazzy Art from Margaret Slade Kelley 

.

.

 

Also, Priorhouse will be taking a short break from posting – need to focus on some WIPs and misc.

In the meantime – here is some music to go with the art:

 


Coming back from D.C., we saw this car on the road.

An artsy looking gal was driving it – not sure what it is (and no – was not driving when photos taken)

Now sure what this is….

Closing Quotes to ponder….

.

“Less is More”       

Mies Van der Rohe (1947) Robert Browning (1855)

.

“Less is a Bore”           

Robert Venturi (1966)

.

“More is Different”         

Philip W. Anderson (1997)

“More is More”         

Iris Apfel (2015)

Wishing you a great week ahead –

whether that is with less –

more –

or different.

Just hope it is not a bore.

    1. Hi – it took me a minute to “get” your comment – but then I realized you were commenting on the car with the white structure on top – and Eric – that was very good…

  1. I love that piece of music, Yvette. Thank you. I loved the movie it’s from. I laughed so hard. Watched the movie numerous times. Haven’t seen it for a while now, but it still makes me laugh out loud when I think of it. Steve Martin was hilarious.
    The car with the white top – I think it’s an iceberg for an artistic or dramatic installation.
    Best wishes for your time away, getting on with more important things. Enjoy!

    1. Hi norah – thanks for your fun comment – and what is the title of the movie you refer to –??

      and you might be correct about being part of an installation – it almost looks as if it was permanently on the car – but likely in transport

      1. The movie is All of Me. It was made in 1984 and starred Lily Tomlin and Steve Martin. I don’t know how funny it would be to watch for the first time now, but back then I thought it was hilarious, especially when Steve received Lily’s spirit. 🤣😉 This is a link to the scene, if it works. https://youtu.be/LkS3fUImcZE

    1. I know – but we really wanted to get home – and in hindsight I wish i would have grabbed a photo of the driver – someone with short pink/brownish hair and cool earrings – but did the best I could to grab these pics (I was a passenger)

    1. appreciate the comment shelley because that is what i was hoping for – I actually had a “walking out 2019” post almost used as the break send off – but ti did not fit and so I was hoping a “two for tuesday” one would be a nice resting post (and yikes – blog pauses are hard because I miss my bit of routine with online peeps – but sometimes we gotta do what we gotta do, eh?)

    2. Hi Shelley – maybe sometime you (or i) can post about taking blog breaks. (Because you know I love some of your other “about blogging” posts)
      but here is what I have learned about different ways to take blog breaks.
      1) jump into a blog break cold turkey. That means the break happens because life gets busy or we just get pulled away (like maybe your project – or to read – write or paint or work etc.) I have had a few cold turkey ones. I think these cold turkey, unplanned breaks are the ones that can be useful – and sometimes it means you cannot even reply to comments and we sorta “ghost” for a while – hah
      2) Take a scheduled blog break. Like take a week off every three months. I know a glad that took all of January off after the holidays. I used to take the summer off and it ended up being too long.
      3) Take breaks when burnout sets in or when getting cranky. or when it feels like the current or black hole has swallowed
      4) take a break to get misc. stuff done – and come back to blog as a way to reward yourself. That is what I am doing – but I am also easing into my blog break – because some of my “to do” stuff had to do with some blog clean up and another blogger I was helping. I got five things checked off my list today.
      — anyhow, please (later on) let me know if you have thoughts to share on blog breaks

      1. Excellent tips, and YES – I need to write a post about it soon, I’m ready for a break of some kind. I’ll be sure to ‘collaborate’ with you on it. I’ll have to wait until you return though…! Maybe I should go on break RIGHT NOW! 😉

  2. Love the jazzy art, and I can’t imagine what that was on the roof of the car! It must have caused quite a stir among other road users. 😀 Have a good creative break, Yvette, and look forward to catching up soon.:-)

      1. I’ve seen them for large dogs, but it could have been an igloo made of plastic for a Winter display (though would that be PC to do a display about Eskimos)? I live near a park that has a big Christmas display every year and has done this as long as I’ve lived here (1966). Once I worked as a volunteer to help set it up. Last year I looked at an online video of the holiday display. Exact same items they had 50+ years ago when I volunteered there. In fact, one was an igloo with two Eskimos rubbing noses. They have a huge parking lot and one year we had a snowstorm early in December. I was bound and determined not to lose any walking steps, so I walked over there and did laps in their huge parking lot to get my steps in. Any port in a storm sometimes. 🙂

    1. thanks – still logged on as I finish up some check-ins and tackle of few “to do” things that had to with the ol blog world – (my to do list was getting too big this month – ) and you know – I guess there are are blog breaks that happen instantly and others that we ease into _ 🙂

    1. Hi again – I am going to check out that movie soon – and Steve Martin’s inspiring story was mentioned in either the Atomic Habits book or the Time Ferriss one – how he worked at Disney and really hustled – I cannot recall which book – hmm – what coincidence for her to mention that book

      also – I could likely catch up on stuff without a blog pause – because my posts do not take too much time (I have learned how to watch the Black Hole current that can suck guys away – ha) but I think they can also help us stay fresh and then can break up routine a bit – 🙂

    1. Hi – thanks for adding your fun comment – that was SO good – like living life with a cloud – very good.
      and I will check out the award – thanks
      and side note – if you want a blogger to get notified when you mention them – you have to add a link to a post and not their main blog link. If you link a recent post – they usually get a pingback. If it is the blog you link – they get nothing… that is a flaw for the WordPress community and maybe the powers to be can fix it –

      1. thanks Sharon – and I will tell you right now that I likely will not do the reply as an award (a lot of us who have been blogging for a while have done so many over the years – and well – I am honored too have been on your list – because I was able to meet you and see your photo style…) but I will link to you in a different way – ok

  3. Lovely art and that sax was awesome! 🎶 It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing! Doo wha doo wha! …Is that some sort of igloo on that car? 🤷🏼‍♀️ I guess it’s anyone’s guess! And it looks like someone is having fun with the shadow puppets on their daily walk! 😁

  4. That car is a head-scratcher. Wonder what was going on there??? Thank you for the lovely music. Enjoy your blogging break. I just came back from one and it was much-needed for me!

  5. Lovely post, the music a perfect accompaniment to the paintings. They are stunning and wonderfully atmopsheric! As for the load on the car – the mind boggles! Good luck with your WIP and see you back soon!😀
