Almost Time For A Fanciful Twist!

Hello! And it's well past time for a Self Portrait but here we are, anyway. As you can see, I am wearing my hair super short these days -- just in time for the cold snap promised here in the Classic City.

"My, what big teeth, ears, nose, earrings you have!" Less hair means you need to butch up about your looks is all I can tell you, Kids. No mane attractions to hide behind once you've taken this type step!

Isn't it funny, Halloween or no, Magic happens. When you least expect it, something fantastic occurs. Supernatural after all means natural, only MORE SO!

To wit: "Take Me To The River" is what I call the work below. although its actual title is "Pasture On The Water." Thinking WAY beyond pink, eh? That blazing yellow is incredible, isn't it? Yellow symbolizes freedom in Bulgaria, evidently. Sculpture by Pavel Koichev, one of my favourite installation artists. (Man, I bet he has a party going on ALL the time -- in his head, anyway.)

But say, speaking of thinking pink... enjoy these lovely bits that will springboard us into other parts of the spectrum that are very popular these days... like GREEN. Everyone and everything is green now. Green is the new black. Green is in, trendy, fashionable, commoditized.
Well, yes and not really. Green is necessary. Green was here first, and we need to ensure it remains this way. It really isn't easy being green now, in many many ways. Sorry, soapbox time. But not too much... I am trying to get in the Party Mood for A Fanciful Twist's Halloween Celebration, where THAT colour spectrum will no doubt be simple black and orange. And is "sparkle" a colour?

This Green Clock in England tells us it's almost time for A Fanciful Twist's Halloween Celebration there, too!
And this pink dragonfly reminds me of Jeanne... another partygoer! Again, like the pink grasshopper from an earlier post -- this is not an objet d'art. This is a living, breathing dragonfly, its hue quite authentic.

Oh and Katy DID! And doesn't she look grand?

I am excited about A Fanciful Twist's Halloween Celebration. I'm excited I have Peeps that will be participating as well as being able to meet and make new pals, take inspiration and courage from those who not only have blazed their own art/life trails but are totally into you doing the very same.

And I am very excited I will have Paper Ladies All Over The Place on Saturday Evening... some on brooms and some not -- but certainly all of them "up in the air" with the joy of just being. I hope you will be, too.
Take care!
Candace in Athens.

Hi Candace! I love your hair! I think it's a really pretty cut, and it suits your lovely, sweet face, just perfectly!... I'll pop by on Saturday to see your creative girlies hanging all about! Hugs, Paulette =D

Candace, you are gorgeous!

I'll second that gorgeous! Cheekbones and eyelids - the kind you can see. The kind that don't hide under droopy brows. Cool earrings! You are one groovy chick. Thanks for more pics of pink insects. I can't believe there's a dragonfly like that. Absolutely over the crazy moon sort of thing. See you at the Halloween party!

Your hair looks fantastic! Love all the think pink and green things. I also loved your comment about the quote marks! I felt exactly the same-we are coming at it from diofferent careers with the same agenda?! I omitted the inverted commas in my parody bit in honour of the fact they were omitted in the book-no doubt not to confuse children!
See you at the party tomorrow with your lovely witchy paper ladies!

Such a Wondrous Place this Faery Space said...

I just adored this!!!! Blessings
