A great and vivid piece, greetings.
Hello Gail, cute limerick on George. Enjoy your day!
Brilliant limerick.Did you do the artwork?Victoriawww.afewsmallstories.blogspot.com
he did indeed trap himself in this painting and is a tad on the scary side.
Wonderful poem, fits the picture perfectly!Lynne x
I wonder what he really trapped... very good.
Must admit I didn't know George, so I looked him up on Wikipedia" George Clair Tooker, Jr. was an American figurative painter whose works are associated with the Magic realism and Social realism movements. He was one of nine recipients of the National Medal of Arts in 2007. "This is why blogging is so good, you learn new things from lovely fellow bloggers.All the best Jan
Ah limericks...they make me so happy. :-) Good one.
Such a fun limerick!
I didn't know of George Tooker until Tess' excellent prompt. You are right, sadness is his hallmark.Anna :o]
Great limerick . . . So talented!
This was sweeet
George is a new one on me! I like your limerick.=)
That's great! He does look a bit sad. Perhaps I should creep up behind him and tickle him! Rosey Pinkerton's blog
Gail - many thanks for your comments on the low carb diabetic blog.I think 'George' ...George Clair Tooker's style is not to my liking either, but the verse you used on this post was good, and captured the subject matter well ... well I think so!Have an enjoyable week ahead.All the best Jan
Sad and puzzling look. Wonderful limerick,Gail!Hank
Magic realism, the best kind of realism...
