Laundry and Art

Since have been doing nothing but laundry and more laundry today (except for a quick run to the store) I have absolutely nothing interesting going on. The highlight of my day was when some stuff I had framed was delivered--so I thought I'd share that brief highlight with you...

These first two are "found objects" that were so cool I decided to frame them. This one I call "Dental Damn." It's a collection of weird old fake teeth lodged into some weird black goo. I had it mounted on red velvet and I think it looks just right!


The next dental-related item I call "The Wheel of Misfortune." It's some kind of antique tooth shading chart. This one I mounted on black velvet.
Then I had my poster of Little Edie framed. It's an original poster from her nightclub act at the Reno Sweeney in NYC in the 70s and it's signed by the photographer. I chose a frame that accentuated the leaves in her hair.

And this last one is a LARGE photograph by the photographer Chris Anthony that I told you about on our L.A. trip. It's called "Breathe" and is the image of a woman emerging from the water wearing clown makeup. It's so up my alley! I just went with a simple black frame on this one.
Hmmmm...it's not showing up too well--let me see if I can find a close-up of the woman. Sorry--can't do it right now. Anyway, she has clown makeup on!

So that was my big thrill of the day! Tomorrow: More laundry!!

How interesting! I would never think to make art out of those teethy things. I'll bet your house is so cool.

I would hang the color chart in the kids BR to remind them to brush!

SHUTUP!
Where did you get the Little Edie?
I am SO jealous...

I have an abnormoral fear of anything teeth.
I can't even engage in loose teeth in my own home.
I can't talk about teeth anymore.

Waiting to see the close up of the clown woman.

While the teeth-things are a little weird, you mounted & framed them beautifully!

Speaking of Little Edie, the play hits the theaters here soon! I am so curious...I so want to go and see if the stage actors do the Edie's justice!
