These are working fingers. I have found that fingernail polish hides a multitude of studio junk. My fingernails are always dirty or stained enough to look dirty. Plain nude polish hides that. My fingernails have never been painted blue before. Accidentally dyed blue when a glove popped a hole while dyeing indigo.
Today was spent looking at art and trying out make-up and nail polish for tomorrow's opening. I will speak sometime between 5 and 6pm and hang out in costume until 8 ish. Do come if you can.
WEARING MY AGE
I have received a grant from the Jerome Foundation to work on a project that I have called "Wearing My Age."
