Well, it's the moment you've all been waiting for. Yes indeed, I have been tagged. So here are 5 random things about me. Don't laugh- artists are supposed to be free spirits!
1. Once upon a time, I was actually seriously thinking about going into modeling. I was somehow convinced I needed to spend my life savings on a class. I actually had a great time. I however made a change of plans when I realized that to be a model 1. You have to be totally stuck on yourself, and 2. You actually have to have money to buy things like designer clothes and expensive photography to promote yourself and 3. You have to like food a little less than I do. Anyway, here's my head shot to prove my story. I can also know how to runway walk, but you're never going to see that.
2. My life's goal is to someday ride a horse. Sadly, I have never had a horse ride. True story.
3. I still sleep with my baby blanket. At this point, you are probably peeing your pants, but that's your problem. As you can see, Blonks Blanks is very faded and it's padding is all lumped together. I used to sleep with my two dolls until I had some real live dolls of my own. I guess that cured my weirdness. My dolls (the ones made out of plastic and cloth) live next to the bed now.
I love to collect puppets. Here's a sketch of one of my favorites named Griselda. Sometimes my puppets help my kids do tasks that they otherwise would be unwilling to do. Hey, you have to do what it takes.
I am a complete geek and I happen to love classical music, especially movie soundtracks. Although I have many favorites, my favorite movie composer of all time is John Williams. I want to meet that guy someday. The closest I ever got was getting to watch one of his rehearsals.
