“Singing Butler” and more by Jack Vettriano

“It amuses me when I hear men saying it doesn’t matter what a woman looks like as long as she’s interested in politics or whatever. I think, ‘Yeah, right.’ That’s humbug. It’s the old madonna-and-whore situation. Men want a woman who keeps the house and looks after the kids on the one hand, and, on the other, a woman who looks like Marilyn Monroe in the bedroom, and you can’t find that in one woman. They see a woman turning into a domestic person and it spoils things.” Jack Vettriano  


Gentlemen Only by Givency

Tell me how many beads there are
In a silver chain
Of evening rain,
Unravelled from the tumbling main,
And threading the eye of a yellow star: -
So many times do I love again.
~Thomas Lovell Beddoes

It’s a fact – the men are more romantic in the rain. When they are getting soaking wet while covering us with an umbrella, we know that we are in good hands (or so we think).Givenchy-Gentleman-pour-homme-Adv-1987Gentelmen 2


Umbrellas by Kathryn Trotter

“Trotter’s style would be considered to be an impressionistic, “impasto” style of painting.  She claims that after experimenting with many different styles over the years and enduring the artistic struggle to figure out what expresses her truest self, she has settled into her love for the palette knife.  The layering effect of thick paint coupled with the intentional pairing of colors that compliment brings excitement and energy to her work. ”  from www.kathryntrotterart.com
