Another Saturday, another round of “Free Association” with an artist’s collection posted here. Thoughts that come immediately to mind as I view each image. Here goes:
“Back Comes The Bride” – She’s remembering her wedding day.
“At The Window” – The use of light makes this a dramatic scene. There is a confrontation about to happen.
“title unknown” – She is not being comforted, despite his attempt.
“Saratoga Trunk” – What is the purpose of the little fellow here, do you think? Why did the artist include him? Also, that is quite a bustle on the rear-end of the older lady, yes? Or is that indeed the “Trunk”? Heh.
“Blue Hour” – There is an optimal amount of kids but the number varies by mother. This one seems to have exceeded her quota.
“It’s Raining” – Lady: “I told you so! Next time, listen to me.”
“Occupation Of Paris” – What a great portrayal of the bitterness and hatred for the Nazis on the woman’s face. Can she cover that baby up any more protectively?
“Up The Staircase” – to Paradise, that is. Ooh la la.
“title unknown” – This girl is definitely in trouble.
“Dark Lady” – That being the seated one, whom I suspect is the spoiler. Meanwhile, the man seems more concerned about the commotion being made by the blonde.
“Love In The Midst” – of laughter at the hat, that is. “Dear, you do look ridiculous. Please leave it home next time.”
“On The Rocks” – What could be on the rocks here is green bathing suit’s romance for yellow trunks. Body language indicates he likes blondie instead.
“title unknown” – Interesting back story here; I just wish I knew what it is. Is the KKK after this white woman, her man, or her hired help?
“In The Garden” – “Don’t tell him I’m here!” Also, those are remarkably modern-looking shoes.
“title unknown” – You do what he did, you end up sleeping with the fishes.
“Shot In The Dark” – Somebody better stop messing with this pistol-packing mama!
“The Name Is Betty” – I swear, this looks like a scene from Only Angels Have Wings (1939) with Cary Grant and Jean Arthur that I just saw on TCM yesterday!
“The Beach” – Three is the right number of kids for this mother, see?
“The Disappearance Of Mary Drake” – “Jonny refused to admit that his mother would ever be a problem…Priscilla knew better.” [All right, I cheated on this one. The line is from a story of the same title that was published in McCalls Magazine in June, 1952.]
“The Music Teacher” – Looks like a tough job ahead.
“The Conversation” – “Boy trouble” if I ever did see it. [As if I knew what I was talking about.]
“title unknown” – Gosh, you would have to be one heck of an interesting woman to totally engage his attention with that distraction going on in the background!
“Boy And Girl Riding Horse” – Heaven, just like I pictured it.
“Love On The Nile” – Peek-a-boo!
“Water Cart” – This one reminds me of the other collection of Tom Lovell that you posted in December, the historically themed works that I admired.
“Party Scene” – I never get invited to parties like this one. Why is that?
“Balloonists Struggle To Escape A Doomed Gondola” – This one resonates with me because I just finished reading “The Mysterious Island” by Jules Verne. Another painting of which I wish I knew the story. This past December, the original of this illustration was offered at Christie’s “The National Geographic Collection: The Art of Exploration” auction.
“As Easy To Love” – As what? Never mind, no need to specify. I know what he means.
“title unknown” – “You promised him Santa would bring him THIS?!?”
“Memoirs Of Casanova” – Times sure change (as I guess they should in 250 years). This is the most famous “womanizer” of all time? Yeesh.
“Light Beer” – Take if from me, an aficionado of beer. Even if it’s lite, you do NOT share a beer with three other guys. It simply is not done. This situation must be settled by a hand of poker, or maybe a Rock Paper Scissors mini-tournament.
“Halloween Party” – Again, where the heck is my invitation? Hmmm. The jack-o-lanterns seem to know what is going to happen next!
You know, as a test, I go over this again and have the same instantaneous responses. I am so NARROW MINDED. I am unworthy of this blog! 🙂
Yeesh. So much for my budding career as art critic. Heh.
