Obviously, I need not explain my all-consuming love for The Golden Girls, so let's just move straight on to the photographs!



Here we are, wide awake together in the middle of the night.  We're thinking about having some cheesecake while talking about Stan.



Black and crystal glitter and glue on 16 x 20" canvas. I found the portrait on the internerd, Photoshopped it a bit, divided it into 80 even squares as in a graph paper type of deal, drew a similar but larger grid on my canvas, and painstakingly drew all the little knobs and bobs of the Girls. Then I even more painstakingly applied glue and glittered all night long.

In retrospect, I would take more care to erase or paint over the pencil gridlines, as they are visible if you get too close. I may get some opaque white glitter to re-cover the white parts, but it seems like a faraway idea right now. I will get some more black glitter to do the edges of the canvas, possibly try to fix Blanche's slightly wonky nose a little bit, and then I will hang it in my living room and smile at it every day.

I am really, really proud of this frigger!

Thanks, everybody!  I usually do quilting, so it was fun to do something that I could start and finish in a day.
