A Visit with Benny and Mary Ellen


This painting is an Alice Neel and it's one of my favorites called Benny and Mary Ellen Andrews.  I just love how she painted portraits while capturing a little slice of life and her choice of color is vibrant and very her own.  This painting I have visited a few times in MOMA in New York and I think this would be just the outfit and supplies to visit it with.

This weekend I'm off to a Portland Blogger get together and hanging out with some of my gal pals. Yah!

What are up to this weekend?

Love this outfit! BTW, They totally have that Darling purse at Frolic on Alberta. I adore Darling handbags they are so well made and take a lot of roughhousing!

Love that stripy dress! It does match the painting perfectly :) I have bad memories of the NYC Museum. It was SO crowded in there that I nearly got a panic attack... Anyway. Hope you had lots of fun at the Blogger meetup! x
