We Will, We Will “ROCK” You!

“ART, ROCKS!”

Yes. Sorry to bother you.  Another one.

This Time I enlisted Help from Friends.

Our Contribution to the Sidewalk BIZARRE!

Here are the Hints;

It is Located at a very Popular and Long Established Store. It has My Favorite artist as an Employee.

Paul Morrison Buys his Martini Accessories there.

It always has a Beautiful and Dynamic Window Display.

Na, Na, Na,  NA NA NA NA,   Na, Na, Na,    Na,Na,Na,Na,                                  

(Theme Song from my Favorite TV Show when I was a Kid.)

EASY ENOUGH!

THAT’S IT FOR THE HINTS.

Now the requirements;  You may have to Ask for the “ART ROCK” or you May Have to Find it. It’s up to them and they’re unpredictable. You must take a picture of you and them with the Rock. So have a camera ready. Or they may even have one.

IT WON’T BE THERE UNTIL 12:30PM

GOODLUCK! GOODNIGHT! and Good Riddance.

It’s Lester the Lobster, already have baked and silly as they come!

He is lightweight and can hang anywhere, and he even sports a hand created lobster bib complete with a tiny embroidered lobster!
Dapper and perfect for an evening out, he’s ready for the hot butter!
About 6" tall, backed with red felt, blanket stitched all around with red DMC embroidery floss, lovingly stuffed with new hypo allergenic fluff stuffing, and highly detailed. GREAT on the neck of a bottle of wine for a lobster bake hostess party!
Enjoy!

She will also Have some of her Artwork on display there during the Sidewalk Bazaar. While down there this weekend Check out Deb’s Art and the Bananas Store. Below is an example of Deb’s Art you will see.

"Beacon Marine" from Rocky Neck oil 24"x30"

Beacon Marine viewed from Rocky Neck.  This is an oil painting of the view from our old apartment on Rocky Neck.  The apartment was smaller than this one, but i sure got a lot of painting done in that space.  My struggle was to get the color, activate the picture plane and make the ‘box’ of the building.  The box is successful.  It was a real struggle to understand the activity below the doc and putting the boats on the plane of the water.  The painting is oil on canvas 24×30″.   copyright Clarke 2007 
(wow, seems like just yesterday)
best,

inquiries about this painting and others always welcomed.
