More Treasures

Whilst conquoring the lower quadrant of my closet this evening I found more treasures.  Namely, my art box.  Going all the way back to the glory days of college (which, by the way, thanks a big fat lot BYU.  My bracket stinks now.) my roommates and I would have regular coloring nights.  Because I don't actually have much artistic talent I would copy famous works of art but as something funny.

For example, I take Monet's Wheatstacks



and turn it into Cream o' Wheatstacks



(My scanner is clearly not appreciating the depth of color I strive for in these.  I apologize to you and the entire Art Community.)

Or The Death of Marat

To Fifteen Minutes Before the Death of Marat

If you look closely there is a People magazine tucked in the rack next to the toilet.  And once again that darn Marat forgot to put the seat down.  Even a fake artist knows it's all about the details.

In Pod News:  A new patient came in this morning and guess what his job is...HE'S AN OLD FAT VEGAS ELVIS IMPERSONATOR!!!  It completely made my day - because as you all know OFV Elvis is my favorite.  He looked just like him.  The hair was perfect and he was wearing aviator sunglasses while sitting inside our windowless office.  Had he been wearing a leather rhinestone studded jumpsuit I would have made him sing In the Ghetto with him, just so I could help out with the backup.

You really need to get your artwork published. Or better yet...make copies of them all and bind them and give it to me for my b-day, or Christmas. I'm flexible. Honestly...they make me laugh so much. I miss the starry night over a trailer park. I'm laughing just thinking about it.

I was just thinking about the starry night one! I agree - publish them officially, or just for family and friends. I will pay!!

I love your works of art--I'll help assemble books if you want! I have access to a ton of useful gadgets. Just sayin'.

I, too, would like a book of "Crayon art by Rachel." I'm feeling a best seller out of it.

I love your blogs RAchel, I love your sense of humor.. you made my day

Rach said...

Ah, the classics by Rachel. My favorites were the statue of David in bermuda shorts and Starry Night Over a Trailer Park. I agree that you must publish your art. And, as an old roommate, I expect one of the first copies. I came across my easter egg dye paintings the other day. Those were some good times.

Oh, and I'm sure you know how we feel about the BYU game over at our house. Tears.
