And my head, let's not even.
So don't really feel like racking through my brain and writing.
But, I do want to show you two works of Paula Rego that I really like. Paula Rego is a Portuguese painter, and she's got a really distinctive style, very Frida Kahlo-ish, and slightly grotesque and unseemly at times, but magnetic nonetheless.

|Looking Out, c.1997|
The second one, I've known for a while.I love the woman in Looking Out.I think the painting has got such a nice strain of humor in it. I love the pose, and I don't know how to explain this but since the first day I saw this painting, I've seen myself in that woman.In that clumsy, crude pose, and the lazy posture. I don't know why.Its not the best thing to say about yourself,or to associate your own self with- but I find it so amusing that even after all these years I still feel the same way. That woman still reminds me of myself. You know what? I'm going to ask my sister about it, and see if she agrees, and why.Will let you know.
Okay let's all say a silent prayer that I never, ever acquire the woman's body; everything else I can disguise.
Time to go tend to the head ache.
