When I was a kid, we definitely did not have cool backpacks like this one: all hot pink and black with a Pink Glitter Batman emblem on the front. So stylish! I spotted this at the Lot-Less Closeout Store, located at 17 West 14th Street in Manhattan.

Modern Art Monday Presents: Emma Van Name By Joshua Johnson

This compelling portrait of a Baltimore toddler picking berries from a surreally-scaled goblet is an icon of the American vernacular painting. Joshua Johnson, who was self taught, is the earliest known African American painter to make his living from his art. Emma Van Name (1805) is his most ambitious and engaging portrait of an individual child. Revealing the hallmarks of Johnson’s characteristic style in its naturalistic precision and imaginative flair, the painting is distinguished by a bravura demonstration of his talents in its nuanced palette, compositional complexity, and deft handling of details, especially in the child’s dress and demeanor.

Photographed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.

You can find this wheat paste mural of a Little Girl Blowing Bubbles at 540 West 20th Street, near 11th Avenue, in the Chelsea Gallery District. It was created by Brazilian Graffitti artist Gustavo Nénão in 2014 and still looks great!

Eating and sleeping are right up there at the top of my list of Gail’s All Time Favorite Things To Do. So, if I can catch 40 winks in a bed-thing that looks like a piece of food, win-win! Sadly, one must be child sized to fit into this awesome sleeping bag shaped like a slice of pizza. The vegetable pillows are detachable, so you can cuddle with a broccoli floweret or a slice of rip olive, if that suits you. Designed, hand made and sold by B Fiber and Craft Emporium.
