Smooches from PTown

Enclosed in a mermaid's body and loving it. Provincetown, MA is one of my favorite places to visit... and I have been doing so since I was a teen. It is full of art, fun, history, tolerance and wild pleasures. Like becoming a mermaid at the drop of a hat.

earrings from perth

i love them...

Skirting the issue

From a favorite linen skirt which drove me nuts due to it's lack of legroom ... to a more free kicking handpainted version...
Here I am in the south of france three years ago, 105F , the skirt is cool, but hard to take deep strides in due to the slit being held together with two toggles and very cool buttons. No you can't see them here because my bag is in the way. sorry!

I decided to get rid of the buttons and paint up from the bottom
a couple of my signature flowers which have appeared in my paintings lately.

here they are finished and detailed before taking off the tabs and buttons...

Rainer was able to capture me on the mini trampoline showing how easy it is to now move about in this skirt. I like it a lot more now, and even though it is over three years old, it is linen, it is a comfortable skirt and now a little refashioned.
I am entering this in the Whip Up embellish/decorate catagory because the painting took longer than the deconstruction. Go see more whip up here.

Trapped in a chair from the past

These chairs have got to go. For many reasons I won't go into here. This photo captures my desperate feelings about these chairs. Crazy I know, but sometimes you just have to let it out.
The photo helped me a lot get in touch with my inner chair loathing.
For much more interesting photos, stories about photos and beautiful selfportraits go see
