Immortalized in Art!

Over the years, various talented blogging buddies have positively DELIGHTED me with artistic representations of myself and/or my beloved late cat HRH. Here's the latest portrait, capturing the essence of She Who Seeks in a dream jar, by LL Cool Joe of Coolness Captured. Thanks, Joey, I LOVE IT!


Perhaps it is now time, as in any fine art gallery or museum, to mount a curated retrospective of the She Who Seeks/HRH Collection, as I grandly think of these works in my own mind. So here they are. Enjoy!

Francie of A North End Journal depicted me in all my gloved glory in one of her cartoons. It was a quick WALK-ON/WALK-OFF appearance, lol:



Barfly of Barfly F'art created a calendar page in my honour. I'm not quite sure whether those are supposed to be MY boobs or whether I'm supposed to be fondling SOMEONE ELSE'S boobs but either way, WOO HOO!


Bryan Pedas and Brandon Meyers of A Beer for the Shower elegantly and accurately captured the TRUE relationship between HRH and myself:


The boys also very kindly helped my face to remain ANONYMOUS in this group portrait of my get-together last summer with Jim of Ocean Breezes, Ron of From Sophie's View and Sophie their dog:


And Anne O'Leary of O'Leary Miniatures IMMORTALIZED Her Royal Highness as a Pirate Queen, which of course captured HRH's true inner spirit TO A TEE.


I expect the National Gallery of Canada to contact me ANY DAY NOW about featuring this retrospective in their upcoming exhibition schedule.

This does not surprise me. Inspiring people inspire great art!

I suppose you haven't really arrived unless others have depicted you in art. Seems you're a person who's arrived. I on the other hand have only been depicted once and that was showing me pregnant on my work leaving card.

LL Cool Joe said...

Hey thanks for the shout out! I'm glad you like the artwork, but now I'm thinking maybe I should have included your purple gloves in the jar too! Damn, maybe next time?

Actually you'll be getting a shout out from me on the Pad once I get my new post published, but I'm struggling with the title at the moment. :D

Love the 'Pirate Queen'!

Miss Val's Creations said...

Definitely museum quality! What fabulous tributes. I love the crowned cartoon of HRH.

mxtodis123 said...

Awesome. You are definitely loved by many.

The Captain said...

Wow, I think I need to make a submission to your gallery.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ The Captain -- I would be honoured!

Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

I love those pieces. The purple gloves are your signiature.

Jono said...

Wow! How others see you is a very interesting (and informative) thing. My artistic talents are null, but maybe I can write a lyric of tribute to your personage. The National Gallery really SHOULD be contacting you.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Jono -- Feel free to wax poetic! Jeez, I'm starting to feel narcissistic now!

Leeanna Henderson said...

I love these! You have some really loving fans. I'm jealous! That pirate cat is awesome. Perrrrrfect for HRH.

Plowing Through Life (Martha) said...

These are great! You've got some really cool blogging pals.

A Beer For The Shower said...

What a cool collection of art you've got here. We're flattered to be among them. So for the next piece that we eventually craft you, now that we've upped our game, should we assume boob squeezing is out of the picture? Or strongly encouraged?

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ A Beer For The Shower -- I never say no to boob squeezing! Bring it on!

Barbara said...

I love them all.

Guillaume said...

That is uber cool.

Janie Junebug said...

You need to open a gallery.

Love,
Janie

Hindustanka said...

Wonderful art! So much creativity and good humour out there :) You are surely very popular.. and intriguing )

baili said...

thank you for such interesting presentation is kind of art exhibition each pic is bringing smile to me

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

I'm impressed by how well loved you and HRH are, appropriately so. And yet everyone is respectful to not reveal your face. You're so well censored by the beer guys, I wouldn't recognize you if we walked into each other. The cat, though? She stands out and up in a crowd. I especially love Anne's rendition.

not just the National Gallery of Canada; but the Smithsonian.

This was really fun to view; but of course, the drawing with you, Ron, and Jim took the prize as far as I'm concerned! Wow!

lgsquirrel said...

Wow. How wonderful to have been the muse for so many artists! Mona Lisa had her smile - you have your lovely gloved hands.

Francie M said...

What a great excuse to meet up in Ottawa! We'll have drinks at your opening. So glad i came back, it was so nice to see Butterbrains again. Last I heard she was lying on the beach in her burkini. Sometimes her politics are so over-the-top.
