Margaret Keane, a famous American artist and pop culture icon, is universally known as the "mother of big-eye art."

2. Collecting Lady Head Vases
Arts & Design - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 00:01:23
Well, I went & did it--again! Just when I thought I had outgrown collecting (Yeah, right! My husband would laugh his head off at THAT one!) I decided to start collecting lady head vases.
Yes, I have been bitten by the head vase bug--do they have a head vase anonymous? No? Well, they should! Anyo...
3. My 50 Favorite Art Masterpieces of All Time
Hobbies, Games & Toys - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 16:13:26
I still remember the day my big sister brought home this huge book from the public library. Curious, I looked inside and was enchanted by what I saw: There were pictures of beautiful paintings inside, and biographies of the people who painted them! I was seven years old, and couldn't believe that...
4. Alice in Wonderland Art
Arts & Design - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:13:14
There are myriad artistic interpretations of Alice in Wonderland to be found, including Alice, and all the inhabitants of Wonderland. Even Alice's hair color is subject to change. In the Disney cartoon, her hair is a golden blonde, but I have seen her sporting brown, blue, red, or even raven lock...

Arts & Design - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 00:03:29
Photo-ceramic memorial--also called gravestone or tombstone--portraits ( first popular in the late 1800s/ early 1900s) have been making a comeback in the past few years. While visiting several local cemeteries recently, I was pleasantly surprised to see quite a few newer tombstones sporting these...
6. I Dream of Jeannie Tribute
Culture & Society - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 00:05:14
"I Dream of Jeannie"--what a great show! Growing up in the '60s, I fondly remember the first time the TV series, I Dream of Jeannie, appeared on the air. I was mesmerized by the show, and thought Barbara Eden was the most beautiful woman in the world! I wanted to look just like Barbara when I gre...

Entertainment & Media - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 00:01:21
I'm a self-taught Southern artist who paints big-eye art in the tradition of '60s pop culture icon Margaret Keane--with a twist of fantasy added to the mix.
Call me Blonde Blythe--it's not my real name, but I've kind of adopted it. Some folks call me Blythe, and some just call me Blonde. Either ...
8. Twiggy: Super Model of the 1960s
Arts & Design - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:14:50
In 1967, my big sister, Melanie, brought home a couple of magazines featuring a doe-eyed model with pouty lips, pixie haircut and waif-thin figure. Intrigued, I pored through the pages. I loved the high fashion photos of this uber-thin girl/woman appropriately called Twiggy, and I thought she was...

Entertainment & Media - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:13:09
Why do I like the art of Charles Burchfield? His paintings stir up emotions I didn't even know I had!
Charles Ephraim Burchfield (1893--1967) was an American artist who drew upon his vivid memories of childhood to create some of the most innovative art ever seen. Searching for a way to express h...

Carl Dean "Alfalfa" Switzer, who was born in Paris, Illinois, on August 7, 1927, is best remembered as "Alfalfa" on The Little Rascals (originally known as Our Gang)--Spanky's skinny, freckle-faced sidekick with the irrepressible cowlick, and off-key singing voice. He appeared in a total of s...

Entertainment & Media - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:10:54
All kids have dreams of what they want to be when they grow up--and I was no exception. I envisioned myself the next Anna Pavlova--a Russian dancer considered by many to be the greatest ballerina of all time.
Here is my recurring daydream: On a gargantuan stage with romantic setting, I dance to ...

13. I Love Brass Beds!
Entertainment & Media - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:11:04
You remember that enormous brass bed on the '70s comedy show "Love American Style?" On second thought, maybe you don't! (I'm telling my age, folks!) I've always wanted that bed!
Fast forward a "few" years--to 2011 . . . now I'm actually looking to buy a brass bed. I would prefer an antique, but,...

Home & Garden - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:11:04
Jasmine Becket-Griffith, a thirty-two-year-old American fairy and fantasy artist, is a phenomenon!

Most recently, I worked with her in writing my book, "Big Eye Art: Resurrected and Tr...
15. Cell Phones Are a Public Nuisance!
Arts & Design - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 00:03:31
I am fed up with cell phones in public! Drivers riding around with cell phones "glued" to their ears endanger the lives of others while they chatter incessantly, paying not one iota of attention to where they're going (especially while *shudder* texting); shoppers in stores roadblock an entire ai...
16. John Steuart Curry
Culture & Society - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 00:03:31
I became a fan of John Steuart Curry when I saw his painting, "Parade to War," in a book. The painting depicts soldiers marching off to war, among the gaiety of streamers floating and flags flying. The soldier's faces, nothing more than skulls, are an eerie premonition of what's to come, as an ol...
17. Peggy Fleming
Arts & Design - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 00:03:26
At the age of ten, I fell in love with figure skating. I was living in Germany at the time the 1968 Winter Olympics was televised.

Sports & Recreation - Thu, 11 Sep 2014 00:02:46
In the early 1970s, I saw "The Sheik," starring the great Rudolph Valentino. Later on, I was thrilled to watch its sequel, "Son of the Sheik." I've been obsessed with silent movies ever since!
Give me Rudolph Valentino, Colleen Moore, Mary Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, Clara Bow, Harold Lloyd, Bust...
