Weekend Waygone 11
My work in the show was mostly etchings, but I did also have my big drawing of bread on the wall as well. I am one of those gluten intolerant folks that came to France as some form of torture as I passed by bakeries, people strolling around town with baguettes, and dreaming of chocolate croissants and something to spread my brie onto. In lieu of eating what always looked so delicious I decided to draw it. In a very big way. I didn't quite get to put the finishing touches on it, but I was happy to have my big, funny chunks of bread on the wall.
Oh, I also cut all my hair off last month! Back in Paris at the beginning of July a friend of mine and I had a free morning with not much to do before we were meeting the rest of our printmaking group at a museum, so we waltzed right into a little coiffure. After getting a mohawk on my first cross country bike trip in 2010 I was challenging myself to see how long I could go without chopping it all off again. I lasted almost exactly two years to the day.
