These wings were a buzz item at the Summer 2018 Open Studios of my neighbors and colleagues, Donna and Paul Goes, mentioned previously in these pages. A most creative couple, they taped the wings to a wall and invited visitors to be photographed. Over 100 visitors enjoyed it! (Except me since I was hosting my own Open Studios.) To continue the fun, they brought the wings as well as a surfboard background to Hull’s annual “Endless Summer” Street Fair where Hull Artisrs sponsors a Kids Tent with art projects.
I immediately saw this as a Christmas/Hunakah/Holiday greeting!
One of my favorite pastimes is to take time to laugh. Me in angel wings was a grand opportunity to do so! May the Holidays and the New Year give you many moments of laughter!
Michael Domina is another of Hull’s most creative artists and a close friend. Some time ago he did a contemporary self-portrait and we discussed doing my portrait in that fun disjointed style. Well, when the time in his schedule arrived, so had Max. Quick change of plans. It’s me and my doggie companion on a new road in 2018. And in case if your viewing screen is small, let me tell you it is a very orange work of art. I’m so happy Michael interpreted me so on the mark!
Closing this last blog of 2018 by saluting my readers, offering much gratitude for following my meanderings. It gives me great satisfaction to write, to share my craft, and to laugh.
Sending special wishes for you to close out this year with a bang and to enjoy 2019!!!
