After the Studio Tour, the Artists Strike a Pose

After the White Rock Lake Artists’ Studio Tour is over, the East Dallas artists come together for an apres-tour party that I host in my home and backyard.

But before we get into the food and wine, we shoot a photograph of the group, modeling our poses after a famous work of art.

This year we posed to simulate the pointillist painting, “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of Grande Jatte” by Georges Seurat.

Go to this link to view the artwork in progress.  It exemplifies how fun it is to herd artists into still poses!

    That painting that you and your creative posse modeled after was the first master work that I remember seeing and that had an impact on me. I remember seeing a large framed print of it in my elementary school. It hung in our school cafeteria and it brought laughter to me and all of the other second grade boys. I’m sure you can imagine just what we chuckled about. Yes, the woman that stood in profile that displayed the biggest butt I had ever noticed. Frankly the first butt I had probably noticed at all in my 7 years on earth. I remember the many thoughts I had about her protruding ass—but at the top of that list was, “how in the heck does she sit down?”

    So, like when I look at your art, I knew from my first entry into the knowledge of a creative master—like you—I gained the ultimate lesson. One that I learned about wine and the enjoyment of it. Art was a matter of personal taste that could be and should be fun with unlimited imagination.

    Thanks for being the you you are and sharing Sharon with the world.

    Always your friend in fun art crime,

      Such a funny story, Barry! I wonder how she did sit down! I guess I can ask the model, eh?
      This painting has been an influence on me as well since growing up in Chicago I spent many a weekend at the Art Institute with my artsy girlfriends (we all thought we’d be artists of some sort back then). We’d always make sure to visit George in our roamings through those vast halls of art.

      And thank you for the compliment. Coming from you, this is immensely flattering. You’ve made my month!
