This is a bit, well, late. The Star Thrower exhibit of Liza Flores was last year. And I just realized there were some pictures from that exhibit that I want to show here. One of them is what I call "The Wall of Stars".
See those stars on the picture above? I cut them out the night before I had them tacked on the wall for Liza's exhibit. I was so amused by them that I find myself still cutting some more stars months after I did it. Wala lang.
Flosie (my cousin's best friend who shacked up in my apartment for a few weeks) caught me doing these stars that hot and humid night and she kept on laughing. I asked why and she said, "Ko-yah Dan, it's so weird seeing you hunched over there with your shirt off, sweaty, looking like a big bouncer and making those glittery stars! Teehihihihi..."
Hmmm, annoying, but I still like these stars.
The second picture are of Liza's paintings. They are huge works on paper. When they got exhibited at the gallery, they had to put beams underneath to support the frames.
The detail that I love most about her works... the stars glow. Yeah, literally. flick off the switch and those stars light up like magic. Of course, it helps that she used glow-in-the-dark paint to make them.
The images of her paintings will be appearing soon in March in the book CANVAS EARTH TALES - 3 ECOFABLES FOR CHILDREN designed by yours truly. Watch out for it! (and yes, I am proudly promoting it)
The third picture is, well... me.
I stole these pictures from Liza's site and when I saw this last one, I was like, "Isdatmee?" This is actually the first time I actually like a picture of me. Is it because I tucked in my midsection properly by leaning a bit forward? Or was it because I had such a relaxing time cutting the stars the night before? Whichever it was, I am glad I saw this and the other two above in her site.
Now, I look human. Arf! Arf! Arf!:-)
