happy birthday blogosphere


The above image is something I found when following Sitemeter to a Brazilian blog a few months ago. She made the coolest mosaic of some of my paintings and now I've lost the link!
The blog (as opposed to this blog) is 10 years old today. Who knew? And how come, if it is such a mainstream part of the interwebs now, my spell check still wants to correct the word 'blog' (as WW pointed out) every time I write an email or document? There's a good post on the subject over at Snippets from Spaceship Orion plus a link to a Wall Street Journal article.
Anyway, this is just a quick wave goodbye for a couple of weeks as August will be jam-packed with activities and holiday fun (I hope...), but I'll check in when I can. Farewell my lovelies.

Wow - thanks for the heads-up on this day ... I had no idea!

Your mosaic is utterly lovely.

Hope you enjoy your next couple of weeks ... in some beautiful place and in the company of good people.

I love the houses. I like to visit the small towns in Texas for their old victorian homes. These homes are just inspiring with there use of color and design.

I'm concerned that you give away way too much personal detail in your profile. :)

Did it feel odd to see this mosaic of your art the first time? It's beautiful! I want it to be an "advent calendar" where I can click on each box and discover a story, or a photo, or another painting underneath :-) Enjoy your holidays! After being sick for so many weeks, you deserve some August family fun :-)

I'm going to miss you very much. I like my daily shots of Andrea. But, in your line of creative endeavor, it is that time of year. After all, around here it's Filberg Festival weekend.
Have frolicsome fun

That mosaic should be in a gallery or the lobby of a very important address in Manhattan.

Have an abfab break and get inspired by the unexpected out there in the rw.

August was originally named SEXtilis because it was the 6th month in the Roman calendar.
I'm just sayin' is all.

Thanks for the mention, Andrea.

That mosaic, with all those pieces right next to each other, shows the brightness and beauty of your work.

I'd pay bucks for that mosaic, I really would!

... I was thrown when you said it was on a Brazilean blog because it looked so like your work. Have a great summer!
