Ashley in Artemis by Moonlight

25 Apr

Art Gowns

Could you recreate a goddess on a mortal?

Well, I can on Ashley. She’s my great niece, and my Sherrie’s daughter.

She is not a model, but embraced the Goddess Artemis when she put on the “Artemis by Moonlight” Art Gown.

Stephanie, our official Art Gowns photographer, is away on assignment. As Ashley was only here a few days, I took the pics. Mini-me was thrilled with the outcome!

I am thrilled! What a beauty.

Young Goddesses just wanna have fun!

PHOTO OP: Ashley congratulates Belén Soto’s Black Drake on his upcoming wedding.

The above shot was in contention for the opener. Blow it up & see my dilemma. All the small pics blow up.

Sherrie’s Fairies

Graffiti Lux and Murals

It had been our best muralling day, and then the fairies were a bonus!

Sherrie and I had done the Exchange District, the weather was gorgeous and “The Rocket” was purring like a kitten.

We head out to grab a Train Mural that had been obscured by a semi last time I’d been in the Peg. That’s when we found the Fairies.

Sherrie had to stay with “The Rocket” while I shot. She was cool with that, as she was idling by this graffed-out dumpster she fancied.

Even though it had been fouled by a giant tag, the mural was splendid.

Featured Street Art

Featured E - Magazine

Do we know when street art actually began?  It’s difficult to pin point, but “urban art” or “street art” had its humble beginnings in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s.  Artists, such as John Fekner, Blek le Rat, Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and others come to mind.  There are literally thousands of urban and street artists from around the world.

Banksy

Banksy’s anonymity was chronicled in October 2013, when he descended on New York City for a 31…
