Weekend Treat - Mountains and Sea

It's a great weekend here at Decisions on Margaritas. I'm in Vail - and there just happens to be a fiesta this weekend (read: margaritas available in little carts right on the sidewalk). Even if there wasn't a fiesta, there are a great many bars here that serve frozen margaritas. In other words, this is utopia with margaritas and Aspen trees.

Anyway, last weekend in my post I showed you the bottom right of Gray Garden, my Rauschenberg. Here is the whole thing. Nobody likes it but me, and that is fine. It's my piece of art.

It reminds me of the summer I spent in Whittier, California. Because I never got around to picking up the t-shirt that said, "I am Whittier than you," I decided to get this Rauschenberg.

Is that at trash can in the bottom left? Probably.

I think one of the reasons I love it is because it is not the typical by-the-sea picture. It captures the grittiness that is so often associated with public beaches. Also, it's got a 50's/60's mid-century vibe. I can't explain it, but it spoke to me.

  1. Girlie, an actual Rauschenberg? This is very impressive.
