De-virginalized. Sorta.

So, until Saturday's Art on Murray, I'd yet to have someone ask me what my inspiration was behind a painting; what I was feeling. This painting [below] was the one that prompted the question. The woman who asked was a very soft spoken black woman who had an earthy, and very aware vibe about her. I was a little shocked, at first, because I never thought I'd have to actually explain it in words [the emotions behind a painting]; that has been one of my greatest fears.

As it turned out, I didn't need to say too much. The thought- or emotion- behind this piece is craving a sense of direction. She then explained to me, what she got out of the painting; what she felt that it was about. She had said that it does feel like the figure represents me; the sky is green in my not wanting to conform to society. By my arms swinging, it shows that I am on a journey, going in some direction. With whatever is on my head [headphones], it shows that I don't care what society thinks of me. She felt that it was a very powerful piece. I'd never been so emotionally humbled before. I really wanted to hug her. When she inquired about its cost, I told her she could pay whatever she would like for it. Since she didn't bring money, I gave her my card, and told her to call when she would like it. I would gladly drive it out to Milwaukee for her.

I hope she calls.

Some interesting Quotes of the day:

'Somehow I ended up being 2 poles short of a tent, so we scrapped that idea.'

'You have to be a private camera whore before you can be a public camera whore.'

practicing my camera whore-ishness.

Art on Murray Confirmation

the first ever Art on Murray, an art and harvest festival.

This outdoor event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 24 from 1 p.m. until 10 p.m., with artists vending until dusk (or later if they choose to do so -- they must provide their own light source -- no electricity is available).

We hope to host around 30 artists for this event, which will have a harvest-themed flair including candy apples, music, pumpkins, games, contests and more. The businesses of Murray Avenue will also be involved that day, vending both food and drink indoors as well as out.

In the evening, the festival will shift from a more family-friendly atmosphere to an Oktoberfest-style celebration with drink, games and music.

A 10x10 booth space is $45. Please e-mail by Oct. 10 for more information.

--->I will be there!! Come out & see me- my FIRST EVER time showing art in Milwaukee.. & they DO still need artists!! Be sure to contact Jenn [email above] to get a space!<---
