That right there is my sister and her husband, who are standing in the living room of their house, and are holding in front of their faces a painting by artist Bren Bataclan.
I took this picture back in March, and really liked the way it came out. I knew at the time that I would end up using it for my Photo of the Day feature … but I didn’t know when.
And then, last night, CBS Evening News ran a story about Bren Bataclan, so I says to myself, “Self: the time has come.”
My Dad’s wife, who is an art enthusiast, gave the above painting to my sis and bro-in-law for Christmas, and also gave one each to Zan and Jayna, both of which currently hang in our playroom.
Yes, we have hanging in our home artwork created by an artist who last night was featured on the national news … which had me feeling all hoity-toity … until I remembered that said artwork hangs just a few feet away from a doll that craps its pants.
