Equality for All

Equality for all...even reptiles and turtles! I saw this mural on the window of Medusa LA, a fish and reptile store, Pico and Westgate, West LA. It's kind of wonderful.
Obama fever has swept the art world! While at Bergamot Station this past weekend, we ran into artist and art collector, Michelle Page, who has commissioned artists in Nepal, India to paint dog portraits on metal.
Michelle recently commissioned the Nepalese artists to paint
portraits of Barack Obama on metal. They are really fantastic and a wonderful homage to our enlightened new President.
In the words of the Reverend Joseph Lowery at today's inauguration..."In a joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us to work for that day when blacks will not be asked to get back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man, and when white will embrace what is right." Amen.

Nothing like a little bit of coolness added to the benediction. Outta sight!

That is the BEST mural I've ever seen! I love that Obama's hands in the foreground, holding the turtle and gecko (?) are really huge! He's got the whole world in his hands!

Rev Lowery really cracked me up using that one! Lol.

Those portraits are wonderful.
