Tobias and his work crew were fairly typical blue-collar men. Rhianna was lovely and talented. So when they saw what Rhianna was doing on the balcony, in full view of everyone, the crew couldn’t help but comment.

“Oh…My…God, I’m in heaven,” said Tobias, staring up at Rhianna’s efforts on the balcony.

“Woohoo!” exclaimed Marco. “That’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout!”

“She’s doing it where anyone can see,” crowed Vince.

“Look at those looong lines,” moaned Jimmy.

“That curve!” cooed Marco.

“How does she do that? It’s incredible!”

“So bold!” said Tobias, impressed. “She’s gotta be using oils.”

“I gotta get me summa dat!”

“I want it!”

“Me first!”

“Show us more!” called Marco.

“Yeah, let us see ALL of it!”

Rhianna grinned down at the excited men. “You really like it, boys?”

“Yeah, give us the full view. Let’s see it all!” answered Vince.

“Okay!” laughed Rhianna, and she showed them.


“Told you she was bold!”

Tobias grinned admiringly and pointed at the canvas. “She painted a cityscape in all orange tints!”

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

  3. Hee hee. I guess it would be hard to photograph such a picture owing to the risk of over-exposure! ☺
