La Mezcla Mask

I’m sorry guys, I’m going to post a lot of posts from now on. Wait, why am I apologizing, this is my blog. But, I was going to have this be just about my art works, but you know, my life is my art work so there’s going to be a lot of things here now. If you’re interested in particular images, you can always use the right sidebar “GO TO” menu to access a particular image. Not that I have to explain here, if I do then I really failed at designing this website.

Well let’s cut to the chase, this post is about the said mask (from the last post) that I was making for the Dance Parteh before I started to paint my Converse. You ask, Bonny, what the hell is this Dance Parteh!? Okay, this is not a particular Dance Parteh event that I’m mentioning. This term refers to any and all awesome occasion in which there is great music and people dance until they forget who they are. I’ve been to a number of these. Recently I’ve been hitting up Bootie SF. I go there about once a month and I do craft projects for my look for added fun. What!? You ask, for added fun, just down a couple more mixed drinks. No, people. When I dance, I’m only under the influence of my own dance. I wear adequate shoes and check my little purse so that I can dance 2 hours straight. This is the kind of dancer I am.

This mask is called “La Mezcla”, which means “The Mix” in Spanish. The focal point of the mask is the mixed colored tassels at the bottom. I went to my super creative friend Ariel Soto-Suver‘s wedding some weeks ago. She used tassel samples to wrap the utensils at the wedding reception. I kept some because they are so beautiful. Their colors and subtle differences make my heart melt. Here they are, reincarnated in my mask accompanied by metallic beads. We will have a great time!
