Work Of Art

Pablo Picasso. Monolithic Nude.
Picasso. Monolithic Nude

I run my hands over my breasts, then turn to give the mirror my good side.  In a strong, clear voice (as per my therapist's instructions), I say to my reflection, "I am a work of art."

With a bawdy wink, my reflection replies, "A fucking Picasso, baby!"

Perhaps, self-esteem is not my real issue.

Fiction in 55 for my G-Man!

Mama Zen...
Picasso couldn't do you justice!
You are beyond Art.
Loved your 55.
Welcome back...Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

Either Picasso or Salvador Dali.
Or Hieronymus Bosch.

The weird guys. :)

Thanks for another Friday 55!
Mine's here. :)

snicker...

priceless

Your therapist is right though. If you don't consider yourself beautiful, then you will be hard pressed to find anyone else that will be willing to or able to convince you that you ARE! And you know that inner beauty shines through so all can see. We all know you are a goddess by that loverly pic down there! :)

Ha! I consider you more a Mari Shimazaki. (Lead artist, Bayonaetta.)

I have no idea what you look like, but I'm sure it's better than looking like a flat Picasso. Interesting 55, Mama Z!

LOVE it. LOVE it. Can more truth be spoken in 55 with such wit? I don't think so.

You need to trade you magic mirror on one that isn't so sarcastic.

I'm with Hedge. Bayonetta does what she wants!

This is perfect! So great, in fact, that I intend to share it on my FB wall. Weekend entertainment, you know.

Wonderful. And a nice change from 'Does my ass look big in this?'
