Moustaches at the MIA!

When I first saw the www.illustrationfriday.com theme moustache I thought pass.  But then I remembered the Salvador Dali moustaches I won at Art Perchance.  And I'd been planning to do a post about last week's 10 year anniversary bash anyway.  So I raided my official Art Perchance junk/prize basket and turned my Skeptical Cat illustration into Dali Cat.  A cat with an air of moustachio machismo. 

Unmoustached

The Art Perchance junk basket.  4 years worth of loot.

An official inspection

Viola!


I was proud to be juried into AP 2013 at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts  Click here to see all the art.  My 4th year in a row.  And the 10 year anniversary. I submitted a gallery wrapped print of my painting Lush.


This year the shindig was indoors.  There were still fun games.  And every time you win at a game you get a ticket to possibly win art. At one point I saw a lady drop 5 tickets into my pail.  That made my night! The free margaritas made my husband's night. 

A cool ceiling effect.  It moved.....spooky.

I grabbed a cupcake for the road. 

And my favorite bling this year was a glowing psychedelic ring.  I wore it with pride!

to be juried, does this mean you are judged and one of you wins or is being chosen to hang your work the goal? I think Salvador would be pleased...and your free margaritas comment made me giggle!
