Lady Luck…shining like a saint, tattooed like a sailor.

Lady Luck

Marita Albers just posted a new painting, Lady Luck, on her blog. I think this is just so beautiful…reminds me Russian icons, the circus, and the fantastic tales of Angela Carter…really, it’s this sort of work by Albers that I mean when I say that I would love to get my hands on one of her pieces; but I don’t think I can afford paintings right now, and so I trade my journals for her plush cats. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Mushroom Kitty! But it’s Marita’s paintings that burn with a lighthearted fire.

She’s got this painting at her house right now (so she says on her blog)…

I am seriously contemplating an art heist in her part of the neighborhood. But man! she’s got tough security! Her evil hench-chickens roam vigilantly around her garden and inside her house at all hours…

Cinderella the Chicken

Yes, the chook’s name is Cinderella, but I mustn’t underestimate the danger of this mission. Look at that mean eye! I need a fabulous fox assassin…

  2. I am working on a Cinderella post this morning for next week. Of the bloggers I follow and follow me last week two of us did a Napoleon and last month two of us did a Daedalus and Icarus post. Astonishing.

    • I know what you mean, though I must say it happens all the time, too. Dare I say “collective unconscious”? ;) In our household we use Sheldrake’s term ‘morphic field’ for the phenomenon. So we can expect a rash of Cinderellas, then? Bet none of them are chickens. :D
