Fishnet stockings and Pepto Bismol

where women creat magazineWell, it’s official. . .I am not only in the magazine, I made the cover!  I can’t believe it . . .I feel like Steve Martin in “The Jerk” when he gets the phone book. . . “I am somebody”!

In December a wonderful photographer Rachel Beck came to my house and photographed my studio for the magazine “Where Women Create”.   Of coarse I drove everyone crazy on what outfit to wear and hoped that my hair would behave itself that day.  I had one shot at this and a whole life time to pick it apart, so I wanted to make sure I got it right.  I choose a black dress with fishnet stockings.  What was I thinking?  I can’t speak for other artists; but I am not usually the type to prance around in my studio dressed like I’m queen of the Opera.  Usually I am in my pi’s.  Did you take a look at the pink feathery thing I choose to wear on my belt?  It looks like a Pepto Bismol bird has landed on my lap!  I know, stop!  I am in the most fabulous magazine, get over myself.  Alrighty now, so, as the tiny grown up version of myself reflects on this experience, I have to say, I do have a beautiful studio that inspires me everyday!  I am very grateful for all of the furniture that people threw on the side of the road for me to pick up and I, as hard as it is to say. . . “I am somebody”, I’m not sure who, but hey, it’s a start!
