Boo!

Here's a piece I made a few years back, a priestess sort of thing, from a doll body with a baby bootie with fake pearls sewed on top (to show she was having visions). I couldn't get her little tiny feet to make the contact I desired with the framework holding her up, so I ended up becoming frustrated and just wrapping a bunch of wire around the bottom, which I thought looked sort of interesting anyway. In the comments book I left at the show, somebody wrote about the theme of imprisonment in my work and hoped I felt better soon. 

Another scene from North by Northwest later today.

Funny - people see what's in their head, then they attribute it to you.

Pearlescent visions - let's see... you were thinking moonstones.

Cheers from Graulhet, Susan.

Caio -

I knew you'd enjoy the plea for mercy. I think I posted this in part because I was thinking about art and criticism, also I was dusting (not usual) and found this on high shelf.

Jude - do the words "pure evil" mean anything to you?

Now that is seriously scary in a Medusa -esque kind of way but beautifully done.

Ya gotta love that wire of frustration.

Nemo- Years ago I overheard a workman saying it was unwise to get pissed off at inanimate objects -advice I have yet to really absorb in any meaningful way.
