This is my mom, sister, and me one Halloween....Do you see a theme of just how wack-a-do my mom is?!? But, come on, how could this picture NOT make you laugh?!?

I do not have a favorite band that I would want to represent here. I appreciate lots of bands and lots of music and my "favorite" may change from one day to the next. I do, however, have some favorite artists.
I LOVE Georgia O'Keeffe. Her paintings, her life, her essence inspire me and I don't have the worlds to appropriately explain how much I love her and her work. My mom is a huge fan of hers as well, so I don't know if my original love was because of my wanting to emulate my mother; but I know now as an adult that it isn't just my mother's influence.
However, if I'm going to call out an artist that I can actually imagine being, I would have to say Freddy Moran. I tried to find her website, but she doesn't seem to have one.... This is a woman who is not afraid of color and has stated that "red is a neutral". I took a class from her many years ago and loved it. She uses color and pattern in a whimsical manner that is so very, very free and really does inspire me. I want to be able to be that free with my quilting.
Of course, two of my favorite artists are my Mom and Dad (and yes, Dad, you ARE an artist).

I would have to define what "most messed up things" would be. I was never really a hell raiser. I rarely got into trouble. I wasn't one of those kids who rebelled and snuck out of the house, etc. I did drink in high school, but that was probably my only vice. These are, however, some of the people that I have had the best time with over time. I would have a picture of my sister up here as well, but yesterday's blog was dedicated to her, so I need to give a little bit of a shout out to those other people who I've been known to go a little crazy with.
