Hot Mess Monday But My New Hair Was A Hit.

So I got a sew in for the job fair last Friday. For all of you in the dark about what that means, it’s when some takes hair pieces and sews them into your hair which has basically been braided into a circle. Maybe this will help.

The experience has been a mixture of me being nervous about my first weave and people loving it…well most people. The kids at school have had mixed reactions. One little boy said, “I don’t like it. Take it out.”  I’m assuming he thought I was pretty before the hair piece…which makes me feel good.

Saturday’s ArtWalk was awesome! My friend Jade and her wife Brooke are heading off to cooler pastures. Jade’s an amazing artist. She works with glass and paint. When I first met her, she told me that the glass work is therapeutic in a way. Well it must be because this weekend was the happiest I’ve seen her. Love must be good for the soul, the skin and the work.

I also met an amazingly talented couple, Frances and V. They are like the quintessential Yin Yang polarity. Frances’ work is softly supple with socio-religious themes. She excavates the missing feminine in Christian religion beautifully.  V’s work is dynamic and forceful feminism that will kick  you  so far out of your comfort zone with it’s aggressiveness, you’ll feel the boot print in your back.

As usual, I was just very happy to be there. I enjoy the company of artists. It’s refreshing. I love to hear people talk about the how’s and why’s of their creations. The ins and outs of their process. Their love of the work. It inspires me…and live painting is now one of my favorite things to do. These are a few of the pieces I worked on Saturday night.

On yet another note, I was so tired when I came home from work that I slept until almost seven. I’m glad that I remembered to put on my hair bonnet or my wig would’ve literally been split. Hopefully I am fully recovered from the whirlwind weekend I just enjoyed. Tomorrow is ESE Kindergarten which always an adventure. Gotta double up on the coffee to keep up! I love’em though. We’ll have fun.
