Bathing caps with faces

why not!

speaking of bathing, it’s pretty scary that summer is around the corner. i have noticed the northern bloggers freaking out over their impending autumn and winter months – i would happily trade places with you! we have hardly had any rain, and it hasn’t been cold enough for my liking. it’s mid august and i am already wearing short sleeves and sandals. sigh.

Wayne White

i try not to re-post stories from mega-rad blogs like It’s Nice That because i figure everyone else reads them too (and if you don’t, you should) – but this was too good not to share and share again.

Wayne White’s word paintings are exactly my cup of tea – milk + sugar with a dash of wit and satire, please.

Wayne has had great success as a fine artist and has created paintings and public works that have been shown all over the world. His most successful works have been the word paintings featuring oversized, three-dimensional text painstakingly integrated into vintage landscape reproductions. The message of the paintings is often thought-provoking and almost always humorous, with Wayne pointing a finger at vanity, ego, and his memories of the South.
