RAINBOW POP ART SHAMROCKS - Who Says Shamrocks Have to be Green?

Rainbow Four Leaf Clovers for St. Patrick's Day

Of course I had to do it, did you think I would not pop art a shamrock in rainbow colors?

My Pop Art Shamrocks is a simple, classic pop art of a four leaf clover done in a rainbow which is perfectly fitting for Leprechauns and Irish folk who long for a little more than green on St. Patrick's Day.  Of course, the first shamrock is green, no self respecting Irishman would be caught out without at least one green shamrock, would they?

Just having a little fun with tradition - again!  Hey, I'm allowed, I'm half Irish on my Dad's side!

You can celebrate St. Patrick's Day with these Rainbow Pop Art Shamrocks on Posters, Apparel & Gifts from The PopArtDiva Gift Gallery.  Order now and you'll be ready to put some pop in St. Patty's Day!

Ever wonder how we get holidays like "National Lemon Meringue Pie Day" or "National TV Dinner Day"?  Seriously, who says what day is "National Rum Punch Day" or "National Eat a Hoagie Day"?  Well, my friends, it's often the President of the United States who designates these special days!

That's right, POTUS has, amongst his/her other chores and duties, the authority to declare a commemorative event, week, day or month by proclamation and each sitting President gets tons of requests to do just that by special interest groups, P.R. firms and trade associations. It is at each President's discretion which requests get a special day, week or month and which ones get vetoed.  Whatever the hopeful holiday, it's obvious that the only ones that actually reach that desk in the Oval Room are backed by powerful special interests!

If you don't have a lobbyist or a White House aide in your back pocket, have no fear. The President of the United States is not the only authority who can declare a "special observance" day or event though he/she is the only one with the power to declare it a true "National" event.  State Legislatures, Governors and Mayors can also declare anything from a "National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day" (March 6th) to "National Jackass Day" (March 21st).  There seems to be no central clearing house in our government for "National Whatever You Want To Call It" holidays, which would explain why there might be two different dates for a particular commemorative day or event.

There is, however, a publication that keeps track of many of these special events called Chase's Calendar of Events published by McGraw-Hill that you can reference in case of a "National Whatever You Want To Call It" crisis.  There is even a blog called National Whatever Day you can use as a reference.

Though I realize this can all be confusing and difficult when it comes to planning parties, I cannot, in good conscience, expect our government to set up a committee, a department or a special ad hoc bunch of politicos who have nothing else to do, in order to get control of this growing deluge of holidays. After all, this would be fiscally irresponsible and a waste of taxpayers money. . . which, of course, makes me wonder if there is not already some secret group hidden away in the bowels of Congress (or Area 51) already "studying" this issue.

Of course, you know, I am now on a crusade to create "National Pop Art Diva Day" and "National Martini Diva Day". . . . . and I might even settle for "National Pop Art Diva Martini Day" for January 14th! Hey, it's no sillier than "National Goof-Off Day" (March 22) or "National Build a Scarecrow Day" (July 1st)!

Sometimes Valentine's Day isn't all hearts and flowers.  If you are anti-Valentine this one's for you:
You brought me one flower
you stole from my yard,
and thought you'd get lucky
with a tacky red card.

You're a cheap little weasel
with no style and no class,
An uninspired boorish Cupid
dressed up like an ass.

I'd rather do laundry
than spend time with you,
or even spend V-day
with a case of the flu!

So pack up your willy
that itty, bitty wahoo,
cuz it's really quite silly
to think I'd do you!

GOOGLE EARTH ART PROJECT - The World's Masterpieces Now Just a Click Away

If you love art, have always wanted to visit the world's great art museums and see the masterpieces of the great artists, but could not travel the world to indulge your passion Google has just answered your prayers.
The Art Project powered by Google is using Google Earth to bring the world's great art to you in a way you can't even experience standing in the actual museums.
Thanks to Amit Sood and other art lovers at Google you can now move from room to room within the virtual space and see 1,000 artworks painted by 400 artists in a way that being there in person can't match because Google is using "gigapixel" technology to zoom in so close you can see detailed brush strokes.  No museum in the world will let you get that close in person. This is how close Google's Art Project gets you to Van Gogh's Starry Night:

Seventeen major art museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art (MOMA) and Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Britain, the National Gallery in London, and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam are already on the list and Google has plans for adding more.  You can even create your own collection of favorites.

 I am thrilled by this project and I applaud and thank Google, All participating Museums and Galleries, Amit Sood and all those at Google who worked to bring the project to the internet.  This is what the web was meant to be, a tool by the people and for the people, a means of disseminating culture and unique experiences, information and interaction. 
With this phenomenal Art Project Google lives up to it's namesake and brings to the internet the beauty of great art to the 100th power with gigapixel imagery and a powerful use of today's technology.

*The images on this post are screen prints from Google's Art Project and I have used only portions of them to illustrate the quality and power of Google's technology in bringing the world's great art to the masses.  My intent is to educate (teach) and inform (report) the public of this wonderful and inspired project, not to infringe on any intellectual property but simply to share my discovery of what I consider an absolutely amazing and generous art instruction and sharing tool:

"the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright"
