|Cards by Andrea Matus|
Maybe the cards above aren't literally worth a million in prizes, but I'm certainly willing to pay for what Andrea Matus
does with her art. And when you go to Vendor Night, every year...
|Vendor Night, 2008|
people rush the tables as if there were gold and precious gems there. Hey, come to think of it, there were!
was selling paintings and necklaces of Picasso jasper
, which is supposed to encourage creativity. Each one is named for an ancient god or goddess. The one she had in mind for me was Neith, "Egyptian goddess of war & arts. She rewove the world each day on her loom." Whoa. 'Scuse me while I go kick some ass and rebuild a planet. Speaking of craft...
I found some "witch/Kraft" Stephanie Rubiano was happy to let me take home, in a print.
Which/ witch, craft/Kraft. Hee hee... [sighs]... Love the puns. Oh, but you have to see what else I brought home. Mercy.
I was charmed by this piece by Lorraine Reynolds, my instructor from "Books Unbound." I love how contemplative it is, even if I don't know specifics of its narrative. It has that quality in common with a piece I bought last year
from Andrea Matus.
Turns out I was Andrea's very first Vendor Night collector. I'm just happy I could help her and the other artists get the sales ball rolling, because cash is the only compliment you can pay bills with, amirite?
Tomorrow: going within for "Under Your Skin."
