Time for woody to roll out another chicken george painting for halloween?
Or we could talk Rose Marie (for halloween?)
Or we could discuss why the tin woodsman is so creepy?
Or not.
OR-- we go "off topic" in reverse and talk about how the recent Wright auctions of Eames stuff slapped down the MCM market naysayers yet again? It is my sense that the high end is getting a bit higher still, while the more common stuff is perhaps waning a bit.
Or was it just the pedigree and notoriety of the seller of the chair collection, and the museum show resume that made this auction a possible outlier? Who knows. But it beats the tin woodsman.
But then again, even on the low end (on ebay) a SMALL MOUNT 60s seafoam armshell with a large drilled hole in it AND all four shock mounts ripped off went for…………$470? That means someone paid 520 after shipping, and the thing needs time and materials from there to get it right. And even then, you have a repaired chair for about 600.
So that does say something about demand… or at least two crazed bidders? To be fair, the lowest prices for shells on ebay have often been much softer than that. Im not sure what Rose Marie autographs are going for lately. Ill ask Ray.

Television is a boon and a bane. I'm fixated, like so many others. But at least I've never paid for the privilege; rabbit-ears is better than a cable bill, says I. And, yes, there are more and more minutes of advertising -- even on the public broadcasting network !

So much for going off topic…
So we wait for Lunchbox's list…. and woody's monkey painting…
Remember when Paul Lynde ( of Hollywood Squares center square fame) played a nervous driving instructor with a crash helmet on a "Bewitched" episode? I do. He had to eat a "nerve cookie" to calm himself down during driver training sessions.
Rose Marie was on Dick Van Dyke. At least that show was in black and white. Black and white is more abstract. I like it. For a minute I thought Mark's photo of her was a Chicken George painting.

How true. The same photo of Rose Marie, in black and white, brings another whole era and aesthetic into play . . . Lips are black; eyes are black; black hair is Black !
Oh God -- what time is it ?

I did acquire a couple more Chicken George pieces, but today I'll share one of my favorite paintings.... Jacques Grinberg - "Swine"

Thanks woody. I just stopped eating pork today.
No really, just today. I can't deal with the way the animals have to live any longer. Red meat is probably next. After a lifetime, NOW I get all responsible and compassionate. Typical huh. Chicken and Fish have feelings too. How would I like a hook in my mouth ?
Anyway I am getting soft, but that is a very strong painting. You always have a great edge to your curatorial selections. I still like the blank metal "portrait" you showed us awhile back. Thanks for going to the trouble, and we always look forward to more.
Perhaps there will be a sealcoat work by OGD in your collection some day.

Tonight's celestial extravaganza ("natural art," for those who can't decide who their favorite painter is ?):

Lovely, SDR. It really is trumps. Apparently the moon will bleed Sunday night. Think I may slather myself with mud and dance around a campfire. Bit too much for the DA barbecue that?

And woody, as Ball would say...
The eggs goes with the bacon!

Just saw that sunset from a few miles south of you, SDR, on Skyline between Alice's and Page Mill. The sunsets have been really spectacular recently -- because of the wildfires, I guess.

Heh -- yeah, that could be it. Tonight's mackerel sky seemed more like a spontaneous event -- but who knows what the mechanisms might be.
(The Shadow knows . . . HahahahaHAAHAHAHahahahahaha . . . !)
