To Elaine, With Love, From Edgar

Dear Elaine,

Your Museworthy artist’s model daughter Claudia informed me that today, October 26th, is your 73rd birthday. She also mentioned that I am your favorite artist of all time. Can’t say that I blame you, doll. I was pretty great back in the day. But I admit that I was rather arrogant, sexist, and anti-semitic. Hey, I just realized something; I was a prick! 👿 Perhaps I should atone for my bad attitude all those years.

Claudia asked me to post one of my paintings in your honor and I’m happy to do so. Now I don’t know much about this whole Internet blogging, and frankly it seems like a bunch of crap if you ask me. But I’m smart and fairly certain I can handle this “uploading” thing. Claudia said that you read her blog regularly, checking in every single day with your morning coffee to see if there’s a new post. So I will publish this image so that it will be waiting for you first thing in the morning as part of your ritual. It’s called Four Dancers, and I hope you like it.

Happy Birthday Elaine. Best wishes to you.
Edgar Degas

I Love you, Mom!! Happy Birthday!!!!
Claudia 🙂

    Hi Elaine,

    Best wishes to you on your 73rd birthday!

    How wonderful it is to be “reunited” after all of these years…isn’t Claudia’s blog incredible?

    All the best,

    Dear Brian, thank you for your birthday wishes. I can’t imagine being 73., but as they say it’s only a number. I want you to know that my husband and I thought of you often and he especially remembered the times you visited and how much he enjoyed drinking a beer together. It was fun. I wish you only the best for the future. Yes, Claudia’s blog is a work of art.

    With warm wishes, Elaine
