What famous artist should paint your portrait? Take this quiz to find out.

Have you ever dreamed of a famous artist painting your portrait? I definitely have. I think it would be so cool to have an abstract or highly stylized painting of myself. Of course, in a few years, we’ll probably all have artificial intelligence available to make all sorts of funky portraits of us. Still, I prefer to do some old school day dreaming.

If I had to choose, I would definitely want a Picasso of myself. (Yes, I know he’s long dead, just dreaming here.) Or maybe a Warhol. Or even a Dali. Heck I’ll take all three! To be honest, I’d love a painting of myself by any famous artist (who wouldn’t???). But I do find something wacky or colorful to be the most compelling 🙂

I found the idea of a world famous artist painting my portrait so compelling that I decided to write a quiz about it. If you’ve been using Blogthings a while, you’ve already probably taken What Artist Should Paint Your Portrait?, but hear me out… this quiz is totally improved.  I did even more research on the artist’s featured, an d now the quiz outcomes are three to four times as long.

So if you’ve ever wondered which artist should paint you, take What Artist Should Paint Your Portrait? You may be surprised to learn which artist bests would capture your personality. Are you more of a pop art or surrealist type? This quiz will tell you and possibly introduce you to your new favorite visual artist.

Give this quiz a go, and let me know what you think. Did you get an artist that you would actually like to paint your portrait? If not, what sort of portrait would you like?

Are You In Love? These 8 Quizzes Will Tell the Truth.

Couple in forever love
Are you truly in love? Take these quizzes to find out.

Are you truly in love? Sometimes it’s hard to know if it’s the real thing or not. In my opinion, there are two times when it’s hard to tell if you’re in love or not. The first is when a relationship is new, and it’s difficult to tell if it will develop into love or not. This is totally understandable and common. The second time we wonder if we’re in love is when we’ve been in love, but we think that we’ve fallen out of love. This is a sadder time to be wondering about love, but all too real for most of us at some point in our lives.

So are you wondering if it’s really love? Even if you think you know, you may want to take these quizzes to see if you’re truly in love:

mother with baby
Happy Mother’s Day! Check out these quizzes for the mom in your life… or yourself.

Happy Mother’s Day! Whether you’re a mom, have a mom, or just know a mom you care about, this is a fun day to celebrate motherhood. This is actually my second mother’s day as a mom, which means I’ll be celebrating a little extra. That being said, I’m super laid back about Mother’s Day… if I’m honest, I think it’s mostly a commercial holiday. My number one request for Mother’s Day was a chocolate croissant. Seriously, that’s all I need to make me happy!

How about you? Will you be celebrating Mother’s Day this year? Whether you have big plans, are taking it easy, or are opting out completely, I’ve got a few quizzes to help you get in the Mother’s Day spirit. Take them with your mom or simply take them by yourself. Here are a few quizzes I think moms (and people with moms) will enjoy:

What Gilmore Girl Are You?

What Flavor Chocolate Bar Are You?
– Chocolate is not as traditional of a Mother’s Day gift as it should be! I say bring on the chocolate for moms. Especially if those Mother’s Day chocolates include dark chocolate truffles.

What’s Your Spirit Flower?
– Flowers are a traditional Mother’s Day gift, and I think they make every mom feel appreciated. So don’t feel like you’re phoning it in if you get your mom flowers for Mother’s Day. I’m sure she loves them! Not sure what flowers to give a mom in your life? Have her take this spirit flower quiz!
