Resa and Carmine

Rene Rosso (aka Holly) penned a beauty in October, 2018.

Based on an old polaroid of Carmine & me, she came up with a poem that sticks in my heart and mind. If you click on the pic, you will go to her original post!

Remember back when you were a rock star

and I was a hippie angel?

How comfortable we were with our

heart and souls bared.

Do you remember now that you are so far

away that night in Eden when you came to me

and I came to you and the rest of the world

slipped away?

We held on to one another, made love and cried

decided never to speak of how every time

the lights went out you rushed to me,

so tender, coming and going.

Young and in love, we named that month Sextember,

yes, it still matters to me.

Do you remember our anguished goodbye?

Neither do I.

Have EYE ever thanked Holly enough?

In a stunning Art Gown designed by Couturier Chicklet, Milly, Ms. Rosso opened with her rendition of Etta James’ “At Last”.

The Chicklet of Ceremonies, Pearl, introduced the entertainers, and speakers.

Key speaker, Georgiann, gave a mind blowing talk. It was filled with statistics and real life accounts. One statistic  from RAINN says, “Every 92 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted; and every 9 minutes, that victim is a child.”

Marina Kanavaki and Chicklet Poppy performed a Ballet Nouveau, to the happy ending of La Fille mal gardée. It is a tale of a girl who is being forced to marry someone she does not love. In the…

Now that I’m Graffiti Lux Art & More, I get to post a wider variety of creativity.

Above is a self portrait of my youthful, one-eyed alien self. Below is a butterfly on a garage door.

Charlie Zero wrote the unique micro poem below.

My  comment to him is titled:  Buck Poem Eye

This alley art is the closest I have to a Buckeye Butterfly. However, if you click on the butterfly art below, you will go to Timothy Price’s blog, and see the real thing. His shots are wonderful!

Below is Princess Blue Holly’s alter ego as Rene Rosso, Torch Singer. In a gown I designed, the hem is a butterfly’s folded wings. Many thanks to Holly, my muse/model!

Here is PBH on an undercover assignment, as a showgirl in the Folies Bergère . She is a mistress of disguise.

Did you ever feel like you were sculpting an Art Gown? Well, that’s exactly how I felt building Queen Isabella. Dedicated to my sweet friend Isabella: I said to her and T, I want Isabella in the title, but with another word. Without hesitation, T said “Queen”. Without hesitation, it made sense to me.
