What's Next?

Of course Thomas Kincade does paintings of Disney princesses! Why wouldn't he?  He is on the pulse of the nation!

Look how long my hair is! I made it through the dreaded chin to neck length phase, that is enough for celebration in itself!

Almost Over

 The Summer magic here in Utah just diminished slightly with the passing through of the Carnival. I dropped Geoffrey off in Brigham City this weekend so that he could drive a carnival semi down to AZ. We pulled into Brigham late Saturday night, the Peach Days Festival was still in full sway with the Ferris wheel rotating and the "Death Drop" eliciting adolescent screams, by Sunday morning the streets were empty. Candy wrappers circulated in the wind and all the port-a-potty latches indicated "vacant"- only their tanks holding evidence of the crowd that once gathered. G was assigned to cart away the race truck, unhinged and separated into pieces like a giant Brio train track set.

After Brigham City, I headed to Logan to visit my long time friend and roommate Chelsea. She teaches art at a charter school there. It was a nice trip to the North, I'll have to go again soon!

Here I am trying to assert my identity as "Artist"   :)

Disney Princesses

I'm preparing for an installation at the Salt Lake Public Library branch in the Avenues. I've been thinking about the Disney Princess religion/school of psychology. I don't know what to call it, but just the fact that I can get Disney Princess toothpaste, bed sheets, fruit snacks, and socks, and multiplication flash cards seems a little obsessive and commercially lucrative (Maybe I can actually SELL these paintings). In taking the facebook app quiz, "Which Disney Princess are you?" Guess which one I am...Is it Aurora? Snow White?....It's BELLE!

"You're smart and very beautiful! You tend to take your time with love and don't judge on appearances alone. You are very close to your family and make new friends easily. You love to curl up with a good book and let the fairytale take you away."
