Alter-ed Ego

Monday, May 03, 2010

Ahhhh! Had a fantastic time in Chicago, what a great city to play in for a weekend - tons of photo ops but getting Tom to slow down for my follies is tough at times.
 
Here are a couple of some "Wrigleyville" street entertainment, this guy was a nut, he went two full rotations on that bar around his bike (someone PLEASE save me from these crappy Blackberry pix - husband has 4 days to get me a new camera for my birthday)
The only art I've finished lately is for an altered magazine image swap, so here she is - before and after:
My Alter-ed Ego
That's a bazillion (give or take a few) french knots for her hair LOL!! I think she looks quite hip ;o) 
Oh, and I also forgot about a lil painting I did for bandeaus nephew's birthday across the pond in Canada, he asked her to give him some art lessons and she's giving him among other things a  pad of art paper I believe and asked some people if they send some words of wisdom for the first pages, I painted a brick wall, used some stencils I had cut that I thought a young dude would like and added quotes for my contribution:
NO RULES
Gotta tidy up my art space for the next big creative etsy spurt I feel 'a comin along.............at the Shores

Hey, wait a minute: your alter ego is my alter ego! :)
Love the brick wall with all the great quotes and Kurt Cobain. As I read the quotes, I keep saying yes, yes, yes! Wonderful, Andrea!
