At the art reception last week, three young women played chamber music during the event. I photographed them and made a painting. I have been trying to make a print of the painting but holy c%*%*p! I cannot get the darn thing to print and look like the painting. Frustrated!!
I want to thank all you older fashion bloggers out there for showing me great new ways to dress. I love seeing REAL people and not just some skinny, grey-haired, ex-model... like I could relate to that!! I wish the fashion industry would get a freaking clue.
I recently attended a gala art reception. There were awards involved. One of the participants had a super realistic style with no visible brush marks. The judging committee questioned her in front of people at the gala. Eventually, the committee awarded her a prize. Negative comments were overheard regarding the integrity of her work. The artist was upset by the question to her integrity and the effect it would have on her reputation. She has requested a public apology.
How would you feel if such an incident happened to you? What would you do about it? I really would appreciate your comments on this matter. Thanks!
In our travels, Bruce and I stopped at Walachin, B.C. a village that was settled by "Remittance" men and their families at the turn of the 20th century.
"Walhachin was no ordinary pioneer community, but boasted luxurious
amenities that were nearly unheard of in other towns of the era. The
Walhachin Hotel had an elegantly appointed dining room, three rotundas and offered quality accommodations. It also had a strictly enforced dress code. Many of the townspeople lived in fine stone homes with high ceilings and large fireplaces and had servants, maids and valets. In town, there was a Chinese laundry, a polo field, a swimming pool, a skating rink[disambiguation needed] and tennis courts." Wikipedia
I was impressed with some of the clothes in the collection. Look at the detail on this camisole/corset cover.
The little bolero was actually a form of deodorant and stain protection. I must research and see if I can find what they put in the little pockets.
A beautiful 1960's dress. I saw dresses very similar at Morgan's wedding!
This looks like an old hat but it is actually a modern hat that has had the width extended (with corrugated cardboard from what I could see), draped and decorated. Must try this!
I had a wonderful visit at this museum. The lady in charge of the museum that day was very informative and passionate about the history of Walachin.
I am an acrylic painter exploring color and texture. I like horses, Canadian wildlife, old trucks, bold women, kind men, tequila and cashews. Most paintings are for sale. Contact me for prices and shipping if you are interested in purchasing a painting. And thanks for viewing my blog!
