The Sesquipedalis Year in Review:
Top 5 Stories You Never Read
Story 5: Laura's Art Show

One might assume from the writings in my blog that many of my friends, like myself, are uncultured and untalented. In this particular case, One would be very wrong. Despite the fact that my talents are limited to video game mastery and crappy puns, many of my friends have actual artistic ability.

I've known Laura so long that I can't exactly remember how we met. I do remember a particular event that seemed to set off the friendship, but that's a story for another time.

I was quite happy earlier this year when she informed me that she'd be having a showing at her house and I was invited. Laura has been a artist/painter(As opposed to house painter) forever, but seems to have dedicated herself to it more in the past few years, and after what seemed like an eternity of her saying, "I'm not ready yet", it was nice to finally hear her say, "I'm ready"

I invited Ruth and Rachel to go with me since I know as much about art as I do women, and having someone there to keep me in line seemed like a good call. They agreed, but Ruth ended up being out of town so Rachel ended up being my keeper for the evening.

The night went well, and I was both impressed and proud of the body of work that Laura had created. You can view her work at her website, but here's one of my personal favorites(Even though it seems to bother Laura that "Everyone likes that one"):

Laura Rocks


  1. Let her know that some random guy who also knows nothing about art admires her "Luz", "Noche Azul" and "Remembering". I wonder, does she really speak Spanish?

  2. She's come a long way from the giant mural that was painted on the living room wall...

    Tell her I miss her...

  3. Twenty-four hours after reading it, I'm still laughing out loud at the "Journey" joke every time it comes to mind...

  4. wooooooo! i'm on the blog. yeah!

    hablo un poquito espanol. me da mucho gusto por admirar mis pinturas.
    muchas gracias.

    mikele, wassup girl! you have a beautiful family!
