Misssy: Thank you. Just gave a heartfelt “ewww” at your story about the Brazilian artist guy over at Betty’s place.
isabelle: Glad you like it. And you said it was Edward Hopperish. In the words of Dina Carroll, don’t be a stranger.
Selena: I am in a dress, just not in the picture. I jest. It’s not the weekend yet. I thought Ossie looked positively coquettish in the original, which wouldn’t have done for Stan, really. Stan’s right about him maybe looking a bit too light and a bit too brooding; but he is that handsome.
Oh, and the picture on the wall: I believe it’s The Rake’s Progress in the original. It’s possibly its modern equivalent in my attempt.
Well as long as you wear dresses on the weekend- everyone likes to feel pretty.
Oh, I think Stan is a horrible flirt…and could, most likely, pull of the pouty look of a coqueter. 😉 Coquettish-That word always makes me think “Dr. Heidegger’s Experiment.”
Handsome- yes, shoeless and most handsome.
Edward Hopper…maybe in it’s dark- noir-ishness (perfectly acceptable word) and the window, but other than that- I don’t really see it. It’s interesting though and I will undoubtedly go home and compare yours to his. Maybe, it could be Hopper/Rockwell-esque (not coca-cola Rockwell)…maybe.
I love this picture, especially the detail on your pants pocket and the expressions on both of your faces.
I’m forced to use modem interfaces to the Internet pretty much annually, when I spend a month at my mother-in-law’s house in rural Australia. Mobile phone can just be one step slower.. though it would be less vulnerable to a rural Australian tractor knocking over a telephone pole, which also appears to happen pretty much annually.
