Oops



So this story is like my worst nightmare since it's so Kwana like. I think I may have said here before that in my fashion days one of my nicknames was "Grace" since I'm such a klutz. Constantly tripping over my own feet and getting all sorts of snickers from the more gracefully inclined fashionistas. I can't tell you how many times my DH has chuckled at my stubbing a toe and gotten his head bitten off for it in the middle of the night. "Hey, who moved that bed?!" "Uh, nobody it's been there for years." "Oh, well, shut it!"





Well, when I heard the story about the poor woman who tripped and fell into this Picasso at the Met tearing it my heart just broke for her. There but for the grace of God go me and all that. Read more about it here.








Best,
Kwana

Wondering why the Picasso painting was in a spot to be damaged... it would be nice to know why the woman fell on the painting too, but the Met "did not elaborate". I also found it interesting that Picasso painted it over a used canvas that already contained a painting.. xoxo

I feel for her. Her embarrassment must be through the roof. And now it's on nation wide television and the www. Wow!

Okay, I'm the biggest klutz in the world but I could never imagine being in that woman's shoes. I wouldn't ever want to!

My best friend had way too much champagne one day and accidentally scraped a painting at the Met. They had to scrape the paint flakes from under her fingernails before they escorted her out of the museum. Moral, don't drink and then go see art.

This is why I don't stand close to the art when i go to museums.Poor lady she's probably scarred for life.
