Went this year for the afternoon and wondered… 1. why I had never gone before. and 2. why I hadn’t got a hotel room and gone to the dance party afterwards. Next year. oh and 3. why didn’t i buy that Eric May painting to benefit old gold ?
Maybe I still can … the A&W on the way out of town.

Here is my new obsession, only I wish it were wallpaper rather than fabric – Reprodepot.com.

While her drawings and sketches are pretty cool, her collages are amazing. Here, see for yourself and try to disagree with me…mash-up.jpg
