It was like my whole blog flashed before my eyes!

Impressionism is a movement in French painting, sometimes called optical realism because of its almost scientific interest in the actual visual experience and effect of light and movement on appearance of objects. Impressionist paintings are balanced, use colored shadows, use pure color, broken brushstrokes, thick paint, and scenes from everyday life or nature.

People who like Impressionist paintings may not always be what is deemed socially acceptable. They tend to move on their own path without worrying that it may be offensive to others. They value friendships but, because they also value honesty, tend to have few really good friends. They do not like people who are rude and do not appreciate the ideas of others. They are secure enough in themselves that they can listen to the ideas of other people without it affecting their own final decisions. The world for them is not black and white but more in shades of grey and muted colors. They like things to be aestically pleasing, not stark and sharp. There are many ways to view things, and the Impressionist personality views the world from many different aspects. They enjoy life and try to keep a realistic viewpoint of things, but are not very open to new experiences. If they are content in their lives they will more than likely be pleased to keep things just the way they are.

Interesting... found at Angie's.  Did you wish her a happy birthday yet?

* * * * *

To conclude the official celebration of my birthday, I'm off this afternoon to reconnect with all three of my sisters at once -- just us -- on a long-overdue "Sister Weekend."  We've got a little "lodge" on 26 acres all to ourselves for the weekend.  The weather promises to be crappy, but I'm determined to get out there and hike a bit -- with my camera.  A visit to Shake Rag Alley is on our list; yarn shopping, for sure, as Annie wants to start a crocheted hexagon afghan a la the latest Garnet Hill catalog; dinner tomorrow night at The Dining Room at 209 Main and viewing of the Current Textile Display, about which I'm almost more excited than anything.  Still suffering a little, so if we do nothing else but sit around and knit/crochet/quilt, that would be fine by me.  We'll see.

I'll be checking in, though it may be dial-upped (and, therefore, short), because a NaBloPo2Mo day without a blog post is like... not going to cut it.  Have a great weekend, everyone!



Very fun quiz! I am Extroverted, Progressive, and Intelligent. Always have been a big fan of Picasso even before I went to Art School.


Happy Birthday Vicki! Hope your reunion birthday weekend with your sisters is unforgettable and fantastic.


Hmm, I came up as "Traditional, Vibrant, and Tasteful" and apparently like Islamic art ... who knew?? (Certainly not I!)


Happy birthday, and have a great time! Would love to see some photos from Mineral Point - it's been ages since I was there!


Hmm, I never thought my fondness for Impressionism made me Not Socially Acceptable. I'd have expected that more from the Picassos on my list of favorites. Guess I would need to actually take the quiz to find out.

Whatever you end up doing, it sounds like a good weekend. I've already missed a posting this month, so I'll just cheer you on. OK?


I loved that quiz! Hope you are all bonding to your heart's content, staying warm and cozy out of the weather and eating grand food. What better way to enjoy the passing year.


Very interesting and good to incorporate a touch of culture too.
