Great idea to use Ds for handles!

That looks very striking and is very daring. Where did you wear it?
The fushia and gold look great on your skin!

Hey there everyone. So I live in New Orleans where I study art history at the terrible University of New Orleans. It's way different from Tulane and Loyola, and no one's ever heard of it unless they live here or went there (people do that sometimes). Anyway, to combine my love of art history and the rebuilding efforts of my city, I made this watercolor painting:

It's based off of Boticelli's Birth of Venus, but instead shows our city's patron saint, the goddess NOLA (which I just made up) rising from the Mississippi River. The bridge in the back is the GNO (Greater New Orleans) which connects the two banks. The east bank is represented by the Superdome, while the west bank (which some call the "Best Bank" but I call the "Skank Bank") is symbolized by industry.

By the way, NOLA is the city's abbreviation New Orleans, LouisianA.

I had some posters locally printed, and I sell them at various art markets around the city. I also help my friends sell their work without the pressure of having to fill an entire booth for a market.

You can find out more about my art group at our site, www.rebirthnola.org.

I like the second top a lot, but that last collar is really nice. I'm trying to visualize what from my fabric stash needs that. Also, it's funny, but I was just looking at a satin kimono-style robe and trying to decide what to remake it into.

Sadly, New Orleans doesn't have any 711s. Among other things.

As long as there's icing involved there are no problems. Yeah, I had to do a senior project at my school too. It was dumb-o. Your cakes look good.

Oh, and way to go on the vegan cakes.

That is so kitschy I LOVE IT! The 70s photo is the perfect image for that technique. It is just dripping with kitsch it is so great. Plus, you did a good job, but really a great idea.

WOW that looks really complicated. Gotta say, I'm sticking to my acid etching! Kudos on the detailed post though.
