I love beautiful dresses. I don't wear them. I never have. I would have loved to. But I love to look and adore. I imagine myself being 20 again wearing one. So the next best thing is to live through my daughters. Our son won't wear them either. Tee Hee!
I wanted to post these and confess I am neither tortured nor have some angry angst. I love all things beautiful whether it's clothing, furniture, the way a lawn is manicured, or how a blanket is folded over a chair, dishes displayed, laundry neatly piled after folding. I believe in reference for every task. This rant went further than just prom dresses! But sometimes experiences make me feel like I need to apologize for myself and my "provincial tastes". Man, what brought this on! I think this all came about from recently checking out the arts district in Culver City, CA. What a charming and very hip area! So cool! Young people defining themselves and how they live. And I felt like a duck out of water. I felt very "out of touch". I just need to get out of my "cow town" more often. What a great place to visit! Now I have work to do to try and be more sophisticated.

April 4, 2014 at 9:52 AM You are one of the most sophisticated people I know, expressed through the honesty and directness of your work. That's why artists love you.
March 17, 2014 at 8:20 AM I was thinking along the same lines, I am constantly visually stimulated and perfection is all around. Getting it on canvas...thinking that it may interest others, that is my first stutter. Julie Wende Kroll Roberts Studio
