    “Actually, Barbie is much older than 50. She was introduced by Mattel in 1959 (55 yrs ago) and she was already 17 yrs old when she was introduced. So in reality, she doesn’t look too bad for a 72 year old.”

Uh, Abe, did you forget something?

lincoln-wild-republican-hairIn 1857 when Abe Lincoln sat for this photo, he looked as if he’d just got out of the shower and towel dried his hair. Did he forget  to comb his unruly locks or did he just not care? 

Many photographers of today keep small combs for their customers, but guess it wasn’t the custom back then.  Maybe the photographer knew what an unusual picture he would have, or maybe he didn’t care either.  I can’t help but thinking if Mrs. Lincoln had been there, this picture would never have been. “For heaven’s sake Abraham, comb your hair!”

We have him on such a pedestal, we have to stop once in a while and appreciate the fact that he was just a man.

Love that Guacamole!

Faces

When I start to draw a face from my imagination I never know what it is going to look like. Sometimes it resembles someone from my past.  This one reminds me a friend I haven’t seen in a very long time. I hope she is doing well.

“Hey Ma, my 9:00 appointment didn’t show, how’s about a pose?”  James Whistler calls.

“Can I sit in the chair and stare straight ahead?” 

“I guess so, Ma,” he answers.

“My best side, the left, only the left, okay? None of the right, my right is old.”

“Ma!”

“And nothing flashy or trashy,  just your basic black and white.  Know what I mean, Jimmy?”

“Yeah, Ma. Come on, I’m losin’ the light.”

“Okay, I’ll do it.”

“Such a fuss, as if anyone is ever gonna see it!” He mumbles to himself.
