Random Candelabra

I have no idea why I keep forgetting to post about this or mention it to anyone, but about 2 and a half weeks ago after discussing a group show with a friend of mine over coffee I found THIS...



It was simply lying there in the road on my way home. I don't know if it fell off a moving truck, was a yard sale toss-away or what, but I thought it was nifty. I didn't see anyone around whom it might belong to sooo..

"Yoink!"

Liberace ... in 'da house, baby.

Pics from Saturday's Show.

A very special heart-felt thanks to my friend and fellow Artist Jasmine Worth for displaying her fine art and handiwork alongside me at the UN*IT*Y fundraiser show at The Flame on Saturday. It was a very full attendance event (over 400 people) and it got so HOT in there that someone's hair even caught on fire! (I know this is true, because we smelled the burning!) Art for a good cause!

Here are some pics of the two of us and our table on the main stage. The mirorred curtains kinda reminded me of a 70's themed Carrie-esque prom, but hey, that's just the way my horror-movie-reference-laden brain works.





The table view in part.. (My wares are to the left-hand side of the pic - Jasmine's to the right and in the pic below.)



A close-up shot of Jasmine's fantastic Art and handmade items on display...some currently availiable at her etsy store by the way. Her prints are amazing, and the necklaces truly unique and well-crafted. I also suggest one of the hand-held pocket mirrors featuring her art for the practical gal-on-the-go. (I simply adore mine!)



A special thanks to my Performance Artist pal Helaine Gawlica and Martha from JUNC for stopping by to show their support of the local arts scene and donate to the benefit as well. Their presence and support was much appreciated.



I can't say thanks enough to each of you for coming out.

xoxo,

Do you reject Satan and all his evils?

"Sure."

Unless of course, my friends are all going to meet up at the Gates of Hades. Then I'd have to seriously reconsider.

There is a great scene (well okay, several great scenes) in Tim Burton's movie : Ed Wood. The one where Ed gets all of his wacky pals together for a Baptism in a swimming pool somewhere in Hollywood.




Well, although I'm not making a monster movie, super-natural thriller, or anything like that - I am following my artistic notions and trying to share my vision with others. That said, I just had a moment recently where (during a bizarre and uncomfortable scene) I looked around the room at my friends and couldn't help but think of that bit from the film. I felt just as blessed, and definitely sure that I have supportive, wonderful, people around me. Ones who will endure the ridiculous and go through most anything for me, and the artistic visions we share together.

Thanks guys.You know who you are. And I love you for it.

xoxo

Heart day..


Hope everyone out there is spending it doing whatever they love to do best. I'm heading over to hit the Asian markets today because I always have a great time there. Plus, I find each time I leave with a warm and fuzzy feeling after being bombarded by all that cute-sy Japanese package art and crazy Engrish translations on some of the packages.
