Summer Picnic (1919). Theresa Bernstein (American, 1890-2002). Oil on canvas. Martin and Edith Stein Collection.
Summer Picnic depicts the artist herself, open book in hand, sitting outdoors in a voluminous white robe that’s falling off her naked shoulder and a bare-chested man holding an apple. A saccharine yet loving fusion of Cézanne and Renoir, this pastoral idyll celebrates Bernstein’s marriage to the painter and printmaker William Meyerowitz.
One of the scariest things when you’re just a few days old like I am is catching up on everything the other monsters already know. Luckily, my ghoulfirends are here to help. My favourite subject : food. A good thing Clawdeen and Draculaura took me to this restaurant with a monsterrific buffet where you can taste about any dish. Here are the specialties I likes best (gorelicious!) and worst (clawful):
Macaroni and Screams - gorelicious and zen at the same time!
Crizza - dreadfully tasty and so many choices!
Ice Scream - gorelicious and goreliciouser! If I had started with it, I wouldn’t have tried anything else!
Brussel Sprouts : clawful! I’ll never have them again, That’s for sure!
Shivers and Onions - scarily clawful! Draculaura and Clawdeen had warned me.
Cucumber salad with scream - Gorelicious! Si light and refreshing. I’d love to try it at home, but I need to learn how to cook irst.
