Today, when my New York Social Diary arrived in my in box, I scrolled down and saw a photograph of my friend and style/decorating/shop-owning icon, Stiles Colwill. The article was about the new exhibit of Matisse’s art at the MoMA. Stiles was there in his role as Chair of the Board at the Baltimore Museum of Art, which lent MoMA several pieces from their collection of Matisse paintings and sculptures. Many people do not know that the Baltimore Museum of Art has the largest collection of works by Matisse in the world. They were collected by sisters Etta and Claribel Cone. You can read the NYSD article here.
As I have mentioned before, I think I am hilarious! No, really, I do! Anyway, my friend and fellow blogger, Maxminimus, did a hysterical post on what pictures not to put on your page if you’re on a dating site. It’s laugh-out-loud funny. There was one picture he posted and he mentioned to the gal in the photo, that he’d be at the Giant Food Store in Old Town Alexandria on Saturday, if she cared to meet him.
As a spoof, I created an article from the Washington Post talking about the near-riot conditions that he caused by announcing the time and place of his appearance. I found out what fonts the Post uses and then photoshopped an article I’d found that was short and had a by-line and a jump. Maxminimus has just posted it and the comments are very funny. Someone even asked for the link on the Post’s site.
I crack myself up sometimes.
