The party in Marengo was on Friday.  The next day on Saturday I was back on I-90, again heading towards Rockford and getting very close…Belvidere, which means something like “beautiful view.”  It was, indeed, all about beautiful views.  The hostess organizes some four thousand women in the mid-west who hold parties in their homes to sell jewelry.  About forty of them and their men-folk were gathered in this old Victorian house.  You guessed it, the women were sparkling and weighed down with baubles and the guys were, well, just there, “looking on,” supportive and amused and in good spirits.  Great food, big punch bowl and abundant decorations.  Good, hearty sense of humor, driving the whole evening and me right in there reflecting that ambiance, as I always do.  As the evening glittered on, I started putting people in thongs and bikinis and eventually there was a nipple showing in one of the drawings.  Hey, it was warm and cozy under that Christmas tree and I just go with the flow. It’s really fun to draw solid, hard-working, sensible people in a trashy,  rock ‘n’ roll way–and they love it, too!!

Here’s a small sample of the drawings from that wonderful evening.  I really did draw everybody there.

and eventually there was a wardrobe malfunction in one of the drawings.  Hey, it was warm and cozy under that Christmas tree and I just go with the flow.  You can’t miss the absolute delight in these reactions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The gracious hostess gave me a present:  a necklace that can also be worn as a belt.  Thank you, Kay!  The perfect gift, since I’ve been wearing these black tube things when I go to gallery openings and something was always missing.  The following day, Sunday, I did in fact go to an opening, wearing my black tube things and my leather jacket.  This time, with the right accessory.  Yeah!!!   Perfect!    Thank you, Kay.
