The Illusion of Glamour

A long time ago, I scrawled the words
in lipstick across my bedroom mirror.
I then found myself contemplating this as I
stared at my own reflection.
We spend our lives creating and re-creating
these illusions upon ourselves
and upon the things around us.
But this is what I enjoy about life the most...
creating our own vision of reality.
What a joke, all of it.... but what fun too!
This is what my new work is all about...

"The Illusion of Glamour",

  1. My illusion of glamour is growing old gracefully and still hoping to wear the coolest cargo shorts when I'm 90...

    I am such a slobby twat waffle! I am beyond fashion

  2. This simply isn't true. Your creating an illusion in cargo shorts, I'm creating an illusion in a pleather pantsuit.
    O.K., I don't have a pleather pantsuit...yet!

  3. How I wish that I could be at your show!!! I would wear my big red straw hat(with the mouse hole and the cabbage roses and the dangley grapes) Yo' mama
