Ethnic Arts Festival 2010

Greetings All,
Corinth (above left/center) got caught in the rain at the Ethnic Arts Festival and had to have a make-over (above right). This is the first time that I've been able to get close to copying one of my Divas and I think that I got pretty close. She was going on a go-see, but she didn't get chosen. Eunice (below bottom) however did get the call and is now living in Oak Park, IL with a wonderful artist Sylvia Hughes.
I think that I will create a new Diva using the head of the old Corinth and her name shall be Harlequin. I chose that name because her make-up looks abstract to me, but not like a clown and I love the sound of the word Harlequin. I will post pictures later.

Road Trip - 25th Annual Ethnic Arts Festival

Greetings All,
The Darling Divas/Friends are getting ready for a road-trip this weekend. They are headed for the 25th Annual Ethnic Arts Festival in Evanston, IL. We will be there two days, July 17th & 18th from noon until 7 pm so if you are in town stop on by and say hello. There will great arts, foods, and people. Eunice (right) got a slip under her skirt for this trip. I got tired of people misunderstanding who she was and I gave Saffornia (left)the beach chair since she's wearing a swimsuit.

I traded Kameryn with Felicia Grant- Preston (Felicia and Ron with Kam left) earlier this year I didn't pick up my piece until last month and I forgot to post it. The piece I got in exchange is a mix-media one with painted canvas, cloth, paper, gold leaf, shells, and buttons. Plus it's framed and I am over joyed. I love trading with artists who love my work and I love theirs. Thanks Felicia and Ron.

I did some changes to Eunice (left) and Saffonia (right). Eunice got a slip under her skirt because I got tried of people getting the wrong impression as to who she is and Saffronia got the beach chair instead of Lark. So we are off of another exciting weekend.
