art thing.

baby smith
found objects on board

well, yesterday's montrose artwalk came and went..thanks to all those that ventured up north to say hi and buy some arts. let's see, there was jon and cathy, brooke, sharon, gordon and leor (and taylor the dog)....lester and cutie pie kendall, and last but not least, kathy and shannon. what a great mix of people...it really did make the day fly by..THANKS!

i found myself getting into quite an art zen while composing collages yesterday (one of which is shown above) see, the deal is..participating artists are expected to 'perform' like monkeys in a cage , or demo their process, so passers by can get a feel for what and how they do what they do. well, try as i might...i just can't seem to form sentences after flipping the 'make art' switch on in my mind. so, thank goddess chuck was there to take the helm when my tongue got tied..

chuck set up the artworkslive roaming cam, techi guru that he is..

my favorite quote from yesterday was uttered by the 'mayor,' who also happens to be the undercover montrose roaming security guard..

(lights dim, curtain comes up)

enter: a wall of perfume, followed by a barbie doll-esque whore type, not more than 18 years of age...clicking and jangling as she catwalks right by my booth. stares ensue, eyes widen, mouths drop.

the mayor chimes: 'why, i think you could have that girl for a 5 dollar bill..AND THAT iNCLUDES THE CAB FARE HOME!'

oooooh deary...i woulda jumped up to heaven and skipped up another level if YOU arrived...lawdy.

and you know...the whole doing art in front of friends and strangers...weeeell, it's just SUCH a personal act, you know? i kinda feel like i'm masturburbating while everyone's watching....and....laughing...hysterically. AND THEN, oh yes, it gets worse...they call all their friends (and the media) to come down and watch the 'baby smith freak show'....*sigh* which, in itself, is kind of a twisted rush...buuuuuuut....not so much.

and i think i might just start selling some of my unframed collages for like 10 bux a pop, but only through my journal. but, come to my studio gorgeous!!!....i'll give ya a deal o'the century!

That Mayor Jeff, he's a work of art (no pun intended!)
The things he says could fill up a pearlcorder in no time.

That was fun yesterday sweetie, too bad a couple drops of rain came our way in the mid afternoon.

art thing
wow!! i can really lose myself in this piece. very very wonderful!
you are so right about the verbal switch. it must be a left brain-right brain thing. it happens to me in an extreme way. i have to watch myself because i can be accident-prone too.

Re: art thing
oh my, MY R.!!!!!!
how i belly laughed at your comment!!!!!

i kid you NOT....a few friends dropped by yesterday...and this is what i said, (to the best of my left brained recollection):

'sooooooo, hoooooow's it goin'? is everything good and is it goooooooood?....and by the way....hope all good thing's are gooooooood.'

omG. pleeeeeease....trust me.....i graduated college. HONEST. and the thing is..i was probably even MUCH more indiscernible than THAAAAAAAAT!!! (and hello i wasn't...i REPEAT was NOT....drinking. *sigh*....although i VERY much wanted to be....even if it meant a shot of nyquil...cherry, preferably.....o.k.....and i can't even believe i'm saying this, but, even NON-drowsy formula would've put me in a happier place. shudder.

and ditto on the clumsy gene. just so ya know...i HAAAATE single story ranch homes....but, if it weren't for them, every single, solitary bone in my body would be broken to bits by now. seriously...i'm more klutzy than a bulimic ballerina on barbiturates...

hahaha! you crack me up!
i can just see the mayor and the tart!

i had verbalization complications on saturday too. at one point in one of my classes, my student Kris did the talking for me. We had a pretty kewl ventriliquist act going on at one point! sometimes words simply do not work. it's a lot easier to just tap it instead of saying it! and i have bad tap slang problems also. "Got" is easier than "have" for some strange reason...
