Thanks, Sharpie!


I was thrilled to have received a comment from the PR manager of Sharpie last week when I posted the photo of my impulsive drawing on my hand. Thanks, Sharpie! I also want to thank Sharpie Susan for noting that Sharpies are not tested for the use on skin and so it is not encouraged. I used the new Sharpie Pen, which I do love. It doesn't seem quite as toxic as the permanent markers, but I really don't think it's a good idea to write on yourself with any writing utensil. Although, a couple of times I have drawn a little temporary doodle on myself with an eyeliner pencil. I'm sure that would be okay. (See: What the Bleep Do We Know?) The Sharpie Fun I have resorted to is drawing mehndi on magazine hands. I did black out a tooth and draw a mustache, goatee and glasses on a beautiful fashion model, but that seemed both too crude and trite to post. The article on Intuition was from an October 2006 issue of Family Circle. It was a lovely reminder to trust yourself. In a nutshell – your subconscious mind holds plenty of useful information so don't over-analyze everything. Quiet your mind. Feel your gut. Listen to your heart.

I am participating in a "Sharpie" exhibition whose opening is today, Feb. 7th in LA @ Crewest Gallery. I did not take pictures of what I drew, but, man what a coincidence.

What a fun post. If you were sitting next to me I would ask you to do a Sharpie design on me...I would feel sooo rebellious, and it would be so great.

Also, I will stop over thinking everything and trust my gut. How did you know this would be a perfect post for me?

You continue to amaze and inspire me dear friend. Love the sharpie hand art...and of course your cookies, hearts and hands, what more can we give?
My copy of the Artists Way is not the mail... finally ordered it, and I painted last night as well.
Love to you...
