In general the artist's approach to following instructions is any or all of the following:
Don't read them,
Read them and ignore them,
Read them 10 minutes before the deadline,
Try to "improve" them,
Do what you want and pretend you didn't understand them,
Think they are only for the "other" people.
Or, what I did a few weeks ago,
just skim through them because they are boring.
So when I agreed to participate in the WomanKind BraZaar Benefit I assumed I could deconstruct, cut up, use as collage, or incorporate, a bra in a painting. And when I realized I had to decorate the bra and it had to be wearable I was a little freaked
I really wasn't sure I could do a very good job. But luckily I am one of the world's top authorities on using glitter.*
I loved having the bra in my window for a few days.
It was fun to play it against David Scott Meier's
"Yellow Straw" ($150)

*This accolade has been given to me by myself.
P.S. Thank you David Scott Meier for the gift box of glitter last Christmas
P.P.S. This year's Christmas ornaments are finished and they also have a hint of glitter on them. I'll show them in an upcoming post.
