Cruisin'

When I was a teenager it was cool to be seen parked at Steak 'n Shake on Eldorado Street in my hometown. Or at Elam's Root Beer Stand....they had the best root beer and huge breaded pork tenderloin sandwiches. Eldorado Street was the place to cruise and be seen. My first apartment (by myself) was on Eldorado and I could open the front window in the kitchen and climb out onto the roof and watch traffic go by at night. Cars cruisin' back and forth, up and down the street into the wee hours of the morning. I thought it was just so exciting.



But in today's world cruisin' usually means cruisin' the web....and that's what I've been doing. Sometimes I can get lost for hours going from website to website, plunging ever deeper into cyberspace to locate intriguing artwork and blogs.

I found this artist's work to be just down right dirty!! Nothing X-rated so don't be afraid to click on the link....and be sure to check out the gallery.

Next I found this artist's blog. She has some very interesting artwork. I especially like her Halloween Calendar Book.

Being that beading is one of my growing interests, I thought this site was just beautiful. There are also links to fiber and paper collage as well as a doll gallery. Lots of good stuff to look at here!!

This next one is an interesting blog. Lots of collage, some jewelry, and just an interesting assortment of artwork. Find it here.

Mostly I like to cruise around the web late at night after HB has gone to bed. I'm much more of a night owl than he is so I usually stay up later. I guess cruisin' at night is an old habit to break.
