It’s Marathon Monday here in Boston. The weather is gorgeous. There are tons of people out and about. It looks like it will be a very happy day. Here are ten artworks featuring runners in honor of The Boston Marathon. Enjoy your day off! (Yep, most of us get the day off on Marathon Monday.) Cheers.

I’ve never been to a true masquerade ball. The closest I came is a school fundraising auction I chaired with a Carnivale theme. I have a cute photo of myself and my friend/co-chair, artist Lee Essex Doyle (you can see her Venetian interiors here), but I can’t find it right now. She invited me to a Save Venice masquerade ball, but we skipped it. Oh well, there went my chance.
I started noticing a lot of photography featuring people with elaborate rubber animal masks, which I’ve been putting aside for a later post. Enjoy these masquerade themed artworks; perhaps you’ll find inspiration for your own year-end celebration.
It’s a long weekend at our house with everybody off for Columbus Day. Not that it’s identified as such, with Columbus now recognized as the savage man he was. Rather, our schools tend to label this national holiday as “fall break.” Works for me. History and politics aside, it’s nevertheless appropriate to look at some scenes of our country, views of America. Here are some American landscapes.

Having made a quick trip to Manhattan over the weekend for a friend’s BIG birthday, I’m definitely in a city state-of-mind.
While all of Naples-born, Rome-based photographer Mario Rossi‘s photographs aren’t necessarily taken smack in the middle of a city, the deconstructed, cubist compositions echo the framework of a skyscraper. Rossi indeed cites geometry as integral to his photography, putting forth that his forms are repeated with an attention to mathematics and music, as though viewed through a kaleidoscope.
Here are 12 examples of Mario Rossi’s colorful, geometrically deconstructedphotos.
Since I’m spending the month on the Outer Cape, curating a collection of whale artwork seems fitting. I’ve never actually been on a whale watch, I’ve never read Moby Dick, and I’ve definitely never worn miniature whales on a belt—not even in the ’80s—but I’ve live in New England long enough to appreciate the whale.
My son spent his entire third grade year learning about whales and whaling, though admittedly I didn’t accompany the class on any whaling museum field trips. I did however buy him Don Carney’s Timid Whale print at 20×20. After the boys broke the glass with a football I moved it to their bathroom, where it lives happily.
Here are 13 not too preppy whale artworks—children’s art and grownup specimens—from a variety of artists and shops, including StyleCarrot partners.
