The Couch Art Where Bernie Came To Visit

 "On the Web we all become small-town visitors lost in the big city." - Alison Gopnik

President Joe Biden's inauguration was bursting with inspirational speeches and events. 

Heaven knows many who now breathe a sigh of relief also needed a good laugh. 

That's when Bernie stepped in with his cool attitude and awesome mittens. 

I couldn't resist joining so many others who included him in various ways in different spaces.

I think he looks super cute and cozy on a sofa designed for the cover art of my Couch & Company story.

Hope you enjoy it and explore more of the artistic side of life at Paint Party Friday. 

Still the kid I used to be

  1. Fun photo creation of Bernie ~ ^_^

  2. I love his mittens. Bernie looks great on your designer coach.

  3. Great mittens, it's freezing cold here, I could do with some heated mittens right now.

  4. Ha ha! Bernie is all over the world lately:):) Fun art play. happy PPF!

  5. lol, I have seen Bernie elswhere too. :)

  6. Hello,
    I have been enjoying all the Bernie memes, they are fun! He has been a good sport with getting so much attention. Take care, enjoy your day. Have a great new week!

  7. fun and great shot...

    Have a nice weekend

  8. I was so happy to watch Biden’s inauguration on TV, too. I agree; Bernie looks “super cute and cozy”. Good job, Penelope!

  9. I had never heard about Bernie and hadn't seen him during the inauguration. Mittens are nothing special so I wondered why suddenly the old man (so he appeared to me ) was sitting in the most strangest places ! And now I know thanks to you and your link ! We don't pay a lot of attention of what happens in the States, only Trump made whole Europe laugh now he is gone and I don't think that Biden will play the clown now. The USA lost a lot of its glamour and had a rather bad reputation since they had elected such an insane person.

    1. Not all of us in America were so stupid as to elect an "insane man"! :) We just endured the insanity...

  10. I love the Bernie memes. For one thing it kind of transcends politics right now and we need all we can get of that.

  11. He’s a good sport about it too. It was actually a nice story about where the mittens came from.

  12. Love it. He looks right at home on your green sofa.

  13. Bernie is showing up everywhere, and it is good for a great belly laugh. Don't we all need that right now!?

  14. The best thing of all is that Bernie, good sport that he is, turned the image into a fund raiser and raised almost 2 million dollars for Meals on Wheels.

  15. This is great! I laugh every time I see one of these. Bernie certainly gave us lots of smiles and chuckles, and the memes just keep playing. I love them. And I think it is great that the lady who made them got the recognition for those mittens.

  16. What a nice addition to the Bernie memes which I have been enjoying. I think he likes being on your green couch.

  17. I love this! Bernie certainly had his few days of fame!

  18. I love it. Bernie does look cozy on the couch. It was pretty funny how Bernie and his mittens ended up being highlight during the inaugural news. I watched the inauguration and was so relieved that the election turned out the way it did.
