just google "hanging meat"

i really have no words for this post. i'm laughing too hard to type, to be quite honest. 

got an email from julia today. the same julia who came to china with us nearly three years ago. she got a comment from a random googler, who happens to be an artist in nyc, on this blog post from 2008 saying he was inspired by one of her pictures {a picture that happens to be one of my favorites from the entire trip} and decided to make it into a 24x30 oil painting.

his muse? me. and random animal tongues hanging in an outdoor market.
the outcome? this. 

apparently, if you google "hanging meat" this picture of me appears. 

all i'm wondering is how i can get my hands on a print to hang in my bedroom.

Oh mare, that is soooooooooooooo funny:) you deserve some royalties so seems like least artist could do eh? def think that needs to be hung in your house more than it is naturally, but perhaps more appropriate in your kitchen vs bedroom? maybe tmi:) just sayin'

Only you, Maren. Only you would wake up one morning to find out there's a painting of you (from a picture in China, of all places) posted on the internet. I love it!
