OFF SEASON AND UNSEASONABLY WARM…
Warm enough to sit outside on the ferry yet cool enough to snuggle into his chest.
It was our first trip together.
Introductions went over easily. Friends of mine met friends of his, we were all laughing and enjoying our laughter as the only audible sound on the sleepy island. It seemed as if the stars shone just for us and the road and beaches were ours to meander.
 Walking into town with the O’s, I could feel his hot stare at my bare skin, it was warm enough for cowboy boots and short shorts.
The O’s : Jen and Danny and their children Riley and Mason
We didn’t explore the entire island. But we were charmed by the parts that happened upon us.
We had a photo shoot while we waited for the sun to set.
I felt the icy burn of the water.
The long shadows before sunset proved distracting in our shots but this one was delightfully magical. I love that the image captures the action of the subject and the photographer. This picture was my favorite of the bunch. If I could nail that look I’d use it for every shot.
For a little local flair, stop in at The Dumptique and dig through MV’s best thrift store.  If it’s not nailed down it’s free. It’s a recycling program at the Tisbury Dump.
I walked out with a sweet tote bag and a few t shirts. One man’s trash…as the saying goes….

Brian, THE Hot Dog King of Martha’s Vineyard, shows off his finds at the Dumptique.

Bea’s Fabric Shop looked empty and smelled like cigarettes.  But there happened to be a stash of patterns sitting around long enough to make them vintage. Score!

I see short shorts in my future. And a western button up for my gentleman caller.

We met up with the O’s while on MV. Danny O is my best friend’s husband and a seriously inspiring artist. His drill remains to be the most amazing thing to watch. He works the magazines for shades of colors and types of textures and then pieces them together to fill in the spaces of his lined drawings.

This dish rack from the Dumptique will be a great way for Danny to display art at the fair and festivals this summer.
“Back to the states” as Brian The Hot Dog King would say with memories of Martha’s Vineyard off season and unseasonably warm.

Which one of you is the Artist?

As a twin growing up people would ask, “Which one of you is the artist?”

Answering that question never seemed too big of a deal. I mean Good Twin could draw a freaking unicorn at age 4!  No doubt she was gifted – but if Good Twin was “the Artist,” what does that make Bad Twin?

Twins are type cast. The harmless intent to characterize twins, for identification purposes I guess, limited our possible growth.

When we were in High School we had a few shirts that were identical except for the color.  There was a strict rule that whom ever was dressed and in the bathroom first wore the shirt. The other one had to change.

I never realized the affect of the differentiation until I left for college. It was like we were two plants in one pot. After transplanting we were able to stretch out and fill in the space that the other one always occupied.

Our separation allowed us to wear the same shirt. We are the same. We are both artists. She sings like an angel and I’m a rock star when I belt out Karaoke.

Today, I am an Artist. Now you all know that Good Twin was a great inspiration, confidence builder and helped me open up my Etsy Shop.

But what you don’t know is that there was someone else who let me jump on the artist-wagon. Danny O invited me to participate in Woodshed two years ago based on a gut feeling that I would, his words, “bring it.” The Woodshed is a collaborative of artists that invade a gallery and take it over as a studio space. The week long creative marathon let me run amongst some pretty talented artists and I kept up the pace.

It was there that I sold my first piece of artwork right off the gallery wall.

Thank you Danny O. More than you will ever know, thank you. I didn’t have the courage to take the reigns but then you smacked the horses ass and sent me off for a wild ride!

Now…  I’d like to welcome Danny O to Etsy!

He’s a seasoned artist. He’s the real deal.
(Please click the pictures for a link.)
He doesn’t care is your house is a mess when he drops by for a visit. In fact, he’s psyched! My dinning room table post brunch, immortalized.
He helps love to bloom.
He paints.
He collages. (And offers prints of his collage for a mere 15 bucks!)
He talks, people listen. (Callisthenics @ Woodshed)
He’s a male model. (Vintage Bullworker available soon at Humpastuff @ Etsy)

Please take a minute to look at his website Danny O Studio Web Site and Danny O Studio on Etsy. You won’t be disappointed. You may even be inspired!

I love you Danny. Good Twin and I have never been closer. I feel like an Artist.

Today is an emotional day,

xoxo
Bad Twin

Opening Day 2011, Fenway Park, Sox vs Yankees

We scored loads of vintage paper and book covers from roadsides and/or transfer stations in Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts over the last couple of weeks on a road trip and Danny has been turning them into pictorial journals of our travels.  Last week he sketched a Celtics/ 76ers game at the TD Boston Garden, Opening Day at Fenway Park and captured a Jewish wedding in an old sketch book.
