selfies


the first time I posted this painting I had found a category in G+ labeled selfies. Thought it meant, well, self portraits. Silly me. I got many questions similar to “how did you DO that?”

Then I looked some more after answering “I painted it.” I was in the wrong place. he he

Then the other day a big-time ballplayer thrust a cellphone in front of the President of the United States and snapped a selfie of himself and the President. Mr. Obama stayed graceful and in the spirit of the event.

I learned today that the fancy ball player had the morning before signed a contract with Samsung and used this national honor occasion to promote the phone. I find the behavior reprehensible.

I could sputter a few more graphs, but I’ll just leave it at that……sputter, fume, try not screaming… sputter.

  1. I think the only photos I have of myself are selfies, and most have been erased because they are so horrible. It takes talent to take good ones, and I love yours.

  2. I do like your selfie better than Big Papi’s selfie, Martha. I did hear on the news yesterday that he said he was not paid by the phone company to pull that stunt with the president. But still he is a paid representative. So was Ellen at the Oscars, I heard. And I loved that celebrity selfie. I don’t want my memory of it to be ruined by endorsement revelations. Like I said, your selfie is better.
