Right on the Kisser

As far as shapes and sizes go. Lipsticks are pretty universal. Not always due to lack of imagination. Practically, there is only so much variation from a cylindrical shape that can fit into a handbag. So when I found a real giant lipstick. My heart fluttered with a thousand technicolor butterflies. My first introduction to […]

Antoine Kruk: Je ne Sais Quoi

When one appreaciates a piece of art, even a very small feature. It is always nice to find the name of the artist. Too often (at least for myself) I find some art that I really appreciate but cannot find the name of the artist. So one can imagine how pleasing it was to find […]
