Something for Halloween, a little late...
Cute or what? I have been working on this between trips and got the finishing touches completed on November 1. I managed to snap a few photos before I left on Wednesday. I wish you could see the brilliance of the vintage sequins in person. They are so pretty!
This one I call 'Spawn'. The form was made by Monica Magness, the skeleton cabs by Gris Tello. I found the ceramic crow bead at Anima Designs - I have been hanging on to it for quite awhile waiting for a project in which I could put it to use.
So... here I am in Miami - Coconut Grove to be exact. After work, I went for a walk today. I wanted to see 'Cocowalk' and I was not disappointed. As I heard from home about the weather (in the 20's with the windchill) I enjoyed abundant sunshine and warmth. I almost felt guilty... almost. I figure I need to soak it in now and enjoy every minute of it before I go home to the cold.
It was a great place to sit, have a margarita and people watch. A perfect way to end the day!
I hope you are having a good day as well.
Leaves of Grass
This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body - Walt Whitman
