A Piece Of Me...

I was born in the second half of the 1900’s, possibly descended of "Scottish Tinkers" (still finding this), Tetched with Megalomania, Decidedly Hetro and an emerging Crone!

Winter, Blue, Spiritual, Empathic, Artist, Artisan, Wordist, Herbalist and a Stone Caster!

Now then, for good measure I’ll throw in ADD, Bi-Polar, OCD and a bit plain ole NUTZ….. J I refer to this as having numerous "Cats In My Attic", which means I still have control...otherwise they would just be "Bats In My Belfry"! : )

Most of my time, these days, is spent dealing with a semi-bizarre condition, "Arachnoiditis w/Myoclonic Dystonia"! Such is life after a fairly severe (ACDF C4-7) spinal incident. I am so grateful to no longer be paralyzed after successful surgery, that I try not to whine about the “Chump Change”! I’m sure any Quadriplegic out there would gladly accept the sacrifice for the freedom of Mobility!

Slam Fan Hopping Mad...

...as a hatter that is, I heard Slam Buckra was at the Vintage last night for the "ART HOP" and I had to miss out! AARRGGHHH...
Here is one of my favorites, from his own original pieces!  Paint that is, his music is a whole other beast, too cool!  I do not know the title on this, but I really LOVE these colors and the expession of his execution!  Self Portrait?  LOL!

Oh well! I hope they had a "bloozy" great time, (maybe even a boozy one too)! LOL!

I was otherwise indisposed and unable to get over there at all! It was awful because I just knew I was missing out on the hottest spot on the HOP! Okay, so maybe I am a little partial, but I do think his music is pretty awesome and really would have loved to be over there sucking down a couple of fine cocktails while chilling to his groove!
Listen to his stuff, www.slambuckra.com and then buy a CD, SUPPORT OUR LOCAL ARTISTS!
Missed out catching the "fire Dolls" too, but I hear they will be appearing again September 20th at the Redding Convention Center during the Redding Tattoo Show!

The Art Hop was a blast last night, just tons of people out having a great time, seeing some fantastic art, visiting friends and tossing back some cool (okay maybe hot) snacks to boot! There were at least three times as many visitors than the Hop before so I know the word is spreading fast! By the next one we should really be jumping!
I did get to meet one of the other local artists that always draws my eye, Kaydee Duckworth!  Her work is really striking!  I was very happy to finally meet her, I have been oogling her stuff out for a really LONG time, find some at a local gallery and check it out!  I would put a link here, but I could not find one!  BooHoo!

 I know Rayette Meredith was doing a demonstration over at Westside Florist, I wish I could have stopped by!  I am going to have to find a way to get out and do a little "Hopping" of my own on the next one!  I did have fun though just visiting as they came through where I sat!  Next one, I'm out and about! 
I sure hope Slam is roaming around somewhere too!
