Art and Toys and Fashion, Oh My!

Spanish painter Diego Velasquez has a birthday today (1599)...

Three Men at Table:



Las Hilanderas:



Venus with Mirror:



Las Meninas:



Las Lanzas:



Google has very creatively styled their name Tetris--like in order to celebrate 25 years of the Tetris Effect.



I feel like today has been a day full of relaxation. I've pretty much been sitting around in my pajamas all day. I guess sitting can be fashionable, it just depends how well you pull it off. I will add that in my pajamas I am not pulling off any of these fashionable looks...

Velasquez was such an amazing painter, the emotions he conveyed are so beautiful :) Haha, and I broke out my gameboy and tetris yesterday after seeing Google.
