the new Two Cosy snuggie combines the comfort of a blanket and the convenience of four sleeves!
Generally, come autumn, and that nip comes into the air, you will find me curled up on my couch with a good book, a cup of cocoa and my trusty guinea pig for company (although I would probably do better with a fat ginger cat companion, but alas I am allergic). I admit I have almost been tempted by the Snuggie apart from the fact they look a bit sweaty and claustrophobic (has anyone tried one? What are they like?) and also signals a bit that you have traded style for comfort and have decided to give up on shaving your legs to live inside a massive fleecy blanket. I mean come on, could anyone ever find a two cosy Snuggie romantic??
But I digress. Anyway, last weekend I was pulled out of my apathetic couch based existence, firstly when I dolled myself up to be a devil woman at a Halloween party. And secondly when I attended a rip-roaring performance of the Electric Pharaoh by the Baltimore Rock Opera Society.
Whoah! To say this performance was raucous would be an understatement. There was enough energy to light up an electric grid. The audience shouted encouragement and everyone was buzzing. They are now performing in DC and Philly so get a ticket if you get a chance!
The day after, filled with the energy generated by this singing and dancing troupe I was inspired to paint these rockin owls. They are bad boys ...or possibly girls ....who know how to rock an audience don't you think?

The Owls really know how to screech their way to fame. Some feathers were really flying that night. These guys are Trouble with a capital T. At that gig they even bit the head off a mouse.

Linking up to Illustration Friday and Paint Party Friday!
Have a rockin weekend!
