A New Hairdo ALWAYS Lifts My Spirits

So, I did again . . . right before visiting family I got my hair done.  I mean, not just cut and blow-dried, I went from graying medium brown to blond with teal baby doll bangs and streaks - - -

what do you think???


I personally LOVE it and it really represents my state of mind and it was uplifting to get a new hairdo to match my 20 lbs. lighter body.  My hair styles have been controversial, but I just consider them another way to express myself.

I was also very proud of my Mother and Mother-in-Law, who were both able to restrain themselves from saying anything about it - I think my hair stunned them so much they didn't even see my skinnier body!

Here is another pic my art buddy Aletha (www.alethacarr.com) took during our drawing workshop at the Nashville Public Library, we are showing and telling, but I am so nosy to see what everybody else drew.

These are images we drew of how GINGER root felt/smelled to us  - all the drawings were bouncy and spirited - - that exercise has informed my work and mind since then:


For Art's Sake,
