Magpie Tales #307: Throwing in the Towel



Painting by Cesar Santos
Baby, when I saw your palette this morning, I knew you weren't going to paint me today. Nothing resembling flesh colors are in the plans I see. Were you working on a landscape? My poor attempt at a joke... forgive me, but my feelings are hurt.

Perhaps now that you see my magenta panties, you'll be inspired. If not, look up a little further and check out the scene. Okay? Feel like mixing some fleshy tones now?

I know I'm acting like a child. I'll give your palette back when you tell me you'll paint me with my arms around Blue Boy or 
in a Wonder Woman costume with a tiara and stars.

Okay, okay I give up. Why are you so angry? Please don't let her use that pencil. Does everything have to be so black and white all the time....what about my red panties? Am I being punished? What in the world has happened to your sense of humor. 

Here's your stupid palette back. And I'm throwing in the towel now - it seems that's what you want. Someday, you'll look back on my colorless back with regret. You'll wish you could do this all over again.

    3. The painter is Caesar Santos. If you check out his website you'll like his syncretism - the amalgamation or attempted amalgamation of different religions, cultures, or schools of thought. He mixes in contemporary figures with classics.http://www.santocesar.com/syncretism

  6. I'd say he had lost his mind! A strong fire burns there!

  7. I loved this ... Yup, one must grab opportunities when they present themselves so as not to have regret. :-)
