The only way we can figure out to “collect” slap art is to take photos.  Do any art dealers sell slap art?  If so, who, where?  Posting may be restricted during the next few days when our source to the Internets may be severely restricted.

Deuce coupe with flames paint job

November 27, 2012

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We got a lot of hits on a photo of a (right hand drive) deuce roaster with flames paint job which we saw at SummerNats2009, so when we saw this deuce coupe with a flames paint job at the San Francisco Car Show on Thanksgiving Day of 2012, we just had to take a picture.

How can a fan of the Rolling Stones show support for the Giants at AT&T Park?
We saw this T-shirt there Wednesday before the start of Game 1.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While looking at the wide variety of T-shirts on display by fans going to Game 1 of the World Series, we wondered when will an Art Museum ever present the first display of  “T-shirts as Art”?

We went down to Monterey CA to take a look at some of the cars that are in that city this weekend for all kinds of fun and frivolity.  We posted a column about our adventures

The Hearts around Union Square in San Francisco have been changed. 

The Hearts are decorated by various local artists and used to emphasize the city’s tourist attractions and artistic heritage.  They provide perfect backgrounds for tourist shots.  The one on the Southwestern (?) corner of Union Square can be photographed from the inside of Union Square and thus provide the tourists with some famed cable cars adding more local color to the background.

A day early?

May 12, 2011

This mural was seen in the work stage (above) and then finished (?) a week later, in San Francisco.

If we post these photos as a “Thursday extra” does that mean we can take Friday off?
