This is the first time I’ve ever blogged in response to my partner, Micheline’s blog but having just seen her Hockey Night in Canada blog and painting, I just can’t help myself.
I’m lucky enough to have two of Mich’s original works of art in my own home, have attended art galas of her work and have ten years of family photos taken by her when she ran Ryckman Photography. I really thought I knew her!
I must admit that it’s nice to know someone as long as I’ve known Mich and still be pleasantly surprised by them. I’ve always considered Micheline a great talent but now I’m thinking she just might be the Don Cherry of the art world –or the Andy Warhol of the hockey world, lol!
And it’s got my wheels turning.
I have an Elvis room (perhaps I’ll post pictures one of these days) and I find myself wondering, “Could Mich reinvent the “Black Velvet Elvis”? Or perhaps I could employ her talents in my den that hosts a number of replicated Egyptian artifacts. Perhaps Mich could do for King Tut what Warhol did for Marilyn Monroe…
Obviously the possibilities are endless. But I’d love to hear from you. Does anyone have an idea that we could put Mich to work on? I’d love to hear it if you do!
