The beauty of art is how you relate to it.. a song, an image.
A mixed media print/painting by artist Michele Maule was
featured today on the etsy homepage.
It was another image of a single plastic school chair and
it totally hooked me. Her style is darling (reminds me
of someone else I know - you know who you are) and
here images are clearly relatable.
I pulled up some pics from the archive to prove my point.

Am I the only one who sees a lone school chair in the corner
and thinks of time out? Am i the only one who actually has a
picture of myself in time out? Thanks mom.
Do other kids get time out(?), because I strongly feel that Ava
is headed in that direction from the looks of dance class.
This painting is titled 'You're Not Here'.
Oh, but I am.

This 'My Blue Boots' painting has a special place in
our hearts at this moment in time, seeing that
one member of the family wears stinky rain boots
on every day of the week. She just got a new more
wellie-looking pair, too, so more boots to come in the future.

Who can't relate to this?
Happy Friday!


  1. You are not alone in the time out. I was held back in first grade because I just didn't want to do anything the teacher wanted me to do.
    Why should I ? at that point.. I remember thinking if I can get away without doing anything I will push it as far as I can...

  2. Ha! Love that picture of do you get a time out in 1st grade anyway?

  3. um, it was preschool. and, i stuck my tongue out.

  4. I LOVE the picture of you and the one of Ava. So cute.
