Murder of Crows was on display down in the gallery at ArtSpace. Now it is up in my living room and I'm LOVING it there! This space was previously filled by a large orange/brown canvas I painted in college. I liked it, but I thought it was time for a change. Also this allowed me to frame some old photos that I really like.
Here's the photo on top:
These are my paternal grandparents Frank and Antoinette Phillipps and their super groovy VW van. I remember this van with great affection. At some point they took the middle seat out, so my brother and I could run around when my grandmother was driving. It was like a disco on wheels. Hey, it was the 70's. We did stuff like that.
Here's the bottom photo:
This, I believe, is my first dance recital. I must be, like, four years old, maybe five. I have a few abstract memories of being backstage at this event. I think I can remember my mother putting make-up on me as well.
Can you find me? I'm in the middle.
I picked this shot b/c I thought the blue wings might be kinda fun next to the crow collage.
OKAY. Lots to do today. I want to get another illo done, tidying, and I have to go through all the gifties I have already bought for the holidays and organize them. And I can only do that when the men aren't home.
Happy Monday everyone!
