A Thief Stole Paintings From The Louvre
A friend emailed me this recently and – well its delightful so I really had to share it with you…..
A thief in Paris planned to steal some
Paintings from the Louvre
After careful planning, he got
past security, stole the paintings,
and made it safely to his van.
However, he was captured only two
blocks away when his van ran out of gas
When asked how he could mastermind
such a crime and then make such an
obvious error, he replied,
‘Monsieur, that is the reason I stole
I had no Monet
To buy Degas
To make the Van Gogh.
See if you have De Gaulle to
send this on to someone else….
I sent it to you because I figured
I had nothing Toulouse.
I thought this was rather clever and I hope it brings a smile to your day, just as it did to mine!
Please share it with your friends and spread some smiles around the world :)

Today, being Sunday the 15th of May is the last day of our exhibition. I turned up at the gallery a little before 12.30 to assist with manning it on our last day. There were a couple of ladies having a look at the works and chatting with Trish about one of my works, a digital print.
Tranquility-Digital Print - Kadira Jennings
Well you can imagine my surprise when not two minutes later, after speaking with them a little further on how I created the work Tranquility, they decided to buy it as a present.
What a wonderful way to end the show! Below are the other works that sold, which was a fantastic result for our first showing. Congratulations to Stephanie Lewis who sold her Prize winning painting, ‘After The Bath’,
After The Bath -Stephanie Lewis -after Degas
and to Deborah Lhota who sold her first painting ‘The Kiss’, after Gustav Klimt.
The Kiss- (A Detail) After Gustav Klimt by Deborah Lhota
Many of the paintings received glowing praises and wonderful comments and I want my students to feel very proud of what they have achieved. In fact more works would have sold if they had been for sale. Trish’s Velvet Rose and her Magenta Twilight would have both walked out the door as well as possibly Jess’ latest work. So well done everyone!
Thank you to all those helpful souls who came and helped dismantle the show this afternoon and our warmest thanks to Peter and Ellie for their generosity in providing the space for us.
It was a great success all round.
