Everyday Art

It’s raining again.

Dusted off the hand weights this morning and did some lazy conditioning while watching “Exit Through the Gift Shop.” The subject is street art and it is fascinating + funny – I want to leave The Actor’s Diet stickers all over the place!

I was recently introduced to Shepard Fairey through Abe, and am just NOW getting star-struck, even though we met months ago…

…and I was already familiar with his work…

(I’m sure you are too!)

Only 3/4 through this documentary and ADORE it. In fact, it may make my top 10 films of 2010 – the movie is on DVD now, but if you have Netflix, it’s available on demand too.

My breakfast was boring. I got inspired by these street artists to make it interesting.

Whatever works!

Julius and I did end up taking a short walk before lunch…

…which was so hideous I couldn’t bear it!

So I added some chopped cherry tomatoes to the leftover roasted root veggies + hard boiled egg

I swear it tasted better. Sometimes it’s the simplest things.

    We saw the movie when it first came out; we went with a friend who is an artist and writes an art blog and she loved it too. It is fascinating and funny and so unique.
    Loved your idea about sprucing something up in a pretty bowl…

    Saw ‘Exit thru The Gift Shop’ a few weeks ago – soooo good! Now I really notice all street art on LaBrea I drive by in the morning en route to work!
    Anyhoo, Happy Holidays!

    Simplicity does wonders. And I am excited to check out that movie now. We love watching documentaries at my house. Thank you for sharing with me, my sweet friend. I wish you and your love a happy and blessed new year!

    I think the ridiculous storm up we experienced here in San Fran last night is what you got to experience today. It made me realize that having a car might not be so overrated!! Trying to find a cab for 30 minutes will do that!

    It’s Bethenney Frankel who insists we start digestion with our eyes. If it doesn’t look pretty, I don’t think it tastes quite as good. Unless it’s something that revels in its fugliness, like chili and cornbread!
