The paintings of Marjorie Minkin
Have exploded into the world
The dynamic influctuous paintings
Always seem to fit perfectly
Into that empty space on your wall
The texture of a Minkin painting
Is so vividly intransient
That it seems to reach out
Into the room and grab you
The colors have been described as
Quote, More vibrant than any
sunset, Unquote
Fellow artists are often amazed
By Minkin's work

Sometimes the edge of a painting
Will grab me
Sometimes a corner,
And it will attempt to wrap me up
Often succeeding,
And suffucate me,
And then spit me out

Who would you say is the single
Main influence of Minkin's work?

The Ubiquitous Smokey

Marjorie's paintings are influenced
By her rautical philosphy of art

Some would say art is from within
You know, a spiritual thing
I don't buy that crap,
Not for a single second
I would have to say
Art is from without
A painting is like life
Not your life, not my life
In fact, not life at all

Who do you consider to be
Your main influence?

That would definitely be
Our family cat,
The Ubiquitous Smokey

Minkin's own mother
Has been an encouraging supporting
Source of encouragement and support

Mrs. Cherry,
How do you perceive
Your daughter's paintings?

I think they're absolutely stunning

Mom, can we go out and buy a
Marjorie Minkin painting, please?

After you eat your dinner!

Yes, you can buy your own painting,
Fresh from the Minkin studio
This month only,
Bite-sized paintings also available

Da da da da da, Minkin
Da da da da da, Minkin
Da da da da da, Minkin
Da da da da da da da da da

Da da da da da, Minkin
Da da da da da, Minkin
Da da da da da, Minkin
Da da da da da da da da da
