Once again I was asked to paint the town. The mission: "To paint the windows for all the city to enjoy at our Convention and Visitors Bureau in downtown Rockford". The Frostettes and I braved the cold day (Nov 22 and 23rd). Our paint would literally freeze on our palettes and to help us get by we used hand warmers stuffed in our gloves and boots. We painted the outside of the windows because the mirrored black nature of the windows did not reflect painting on the inside. Plus, I can only imagine the messy clean-up. We used my design of the "We Belong in Rockford, Illinois" mug as our inspiration. I encouraged the Frostettes to paint messages and little signature motifs within the mural. Hummm...can you find them?
In my opinion the most special thing about this mural...was creating it. Just like it says, "Cherish the Moments". Spending a couple days doing what I love, with talented girls, in the freezing cold, for the greater good...cherished moments.
There is no place in the country like Miss Cayce's. It is the most magical place in the LAND! Thank you Miss Cayce's and West Texas for the fabulous FROSTY party this past weekend. Your land is rich in oil...but your people are richer in kindness and hospitality!!! Thank you, thank you for supporting my work, my mission to spread cheer throughout the LAND, for supporting my momma and her battle with Alzheimer's. The donations that you're making to the Alzheimer's Association are so generous.
