Face Painting, Singleton Hippie Art















Face Painting
(c)Singleton 2008
SOLD

Come on in,
drop your
wanna~be's
and
look~at~me's
at the kitchen
door...

Hang your
fancy keys
on the picket fence,
your three piece suit
on the arbor,
your Big Fish Story on the clothesline....

Come on in,
but
make it free...


I'm not
tradin' peace
for nothin'....

Colored markers, pencils, ink and a promise I made to myself 30 something years ago....
And still believe. Love is free, but it ain't cheap.

Singleton Hippie Art , my soul on paper

I love your little "aside" note in the upper right hand corner. I'm for getting lost sometimes! You never know what you will find. Wonderful!!
Peace to you!!

Todd....
Real time, almost!
And I so agree with you...
sometimes when we don't know where we're going,
but we just sit back and ride the waves....
it's the butterfly effect....
the "meant to be"....
that takes us into the arms of fate...

Much peace to you and your world....
I know you pass it on!

Lol...well I have no 3 piece suit, nor fancy keys....but I do have some water-logged reed sandals and a hose that's been used for siphoning... I'll hang them on the picket fence and meet you on the porch...
We will dance barefoot until we're sitting indian style and remember all of our tomorrows together...

Skinnylittlelove...Muah! I can't wait to see you! Packin' now! Magic carpet bag full of hippie tricks....
plaster of paris for making masks...
michelobs for getting plastered...
hand me down jeans for passin' around ....
Tiny little trinkets for passin' out..
Muah! Counting!

It's not cheap,,but often very reasonable,,on the installment plan.

Love the art!
(Know it was a great trip)

singleton said...

Ahhh, Babs! You got that right! And yeah, the trip was great....
but most of all,
the smiles....
Lemon drops and polaroid shots,
pajama heads and make believe beds,
Lobster claws
and strawberry jam,
sidewalk chalk and
plaster masks....

Yeah,
love grows.....

Anon...
I was deeply touched by a dragonfly today...
An accidental "stop me in my tracks" dragonfly...
Sometimes,
butterflies play dress up...
hiding behind the wings of
hummingbirds out the window,
seagulls in the sand....
dragonflies on the river...
faces in a crowd....

Peace~
It's their only song

And whew, I'm so glad it's you.... I was afraid DIBBS was a secret code for something that I couldn't figure out!
