art and hair




(driving through a blizzard with totally unruly hair to the barber, paintings by Ellie Jones, haircuts by Ellie Jones)
Ellie is my haircutting barber/artist sweetheart, who runs a gallery and barbershop in Ithaca next to Moosewood Restaurant (of restaurant and cookbook fame). Me and my dumpling are looking most FAB thanks to Ellie's efforts this morning, and aren't her horse and flower paintings spectacular? Gotta win that lottery and buy some original artwork.....

You know - Maude is so cool about letting you post her picture/blog about whatever she says...etc.

I don't think I'd be that congenial. Ya wouldn't be takin' my picture with my hair all wet.

Nice do's, I wouldn't be congenial about my close up. Beautiful celadon, can't wait to see your new zebra.

Hey! If I looked as wonderful as that I'd be running after the camera and BEGGING to be photographed! That's a great picture, I think and both you and Maude are highly photogenic.

Aww... peach pie is the header now! She looks beautiful.

I do love those paintings, only you could find a barber AND artist in one person. I need to move up there. I promise I would never try to hug you.

My word verification is "thypot". Ha ha ha! I don't know if it's referring to your pots or smoking some pot. :)
