|Translation: Bless the Hairdresser so that they may produce mullets 8×10 watercolor|
This is a favorite. Is it ok that I cried because I got so excited when this idea popped in my head? Long drives are a great time for percolating ideas. It has been brewing in my head, the Birth of Venus painting, how to involve some of the Beehive ladies in the work that they love as well as have a less potentially offensive picture. I also think of my awesome class mate from Massage School and how I’ve been wanting to capture her rock star character – she’s also a hairdresser. Then it just all came together as if this is what I had in mind all along. Since this was a surprise I had to use photos from the internet and hope I had the right stylists and that their image hadn’t changed too much. I can’t wait to show this to Carole Ann as well. How would you feel if you found someone you haven’t seen in a year had painted you as a naked Venus with a hot pink mullet? Let me know. Is that endearing or a little creepy?
