No I am not drinking on the job. 😉 But I am playing with men’s neckties. I’ve always had a fascination with these fashionable little pieces of art ever since I was a girl. Let’s face it….for the most part men’s clothing is boring. Sure, if you live in Milan and are a part of the fashion scene, there will be a lot of variety and flair. But for the everyday man it is pants, shirt and a belt with very little color or pattern. The only real way to jazz it up is a tie. Ties are pretty. Gay or straight, it is one way that men can show some artsy beauty without being judged by society.
In this piece cumulatively titled “Tying One On” I am not only showcasing the beauty of men’s attire, but also showing a little humor.

Good ol’ Honest Abe. It is interesting how artists over the years have fixated on certain historic or iconic figures as subject for many creative pieces. I have a few that I come back to over and over again. Abraham Lincoln is one of them. Presidents who get assassinated seem to really “stick” with us, but that is not the allure. He was not a handsome man by any standards, but there is something about his eyes, nose and long face that just says “calm assertiveness”. And that is sexy! His features were very prominent and strong which also has appeal. Lots of contrast to work with. A perfect playground for an artist! I know when I watch movies, I am always most attracted to strong men with “presence” regardless of their looks….that is what Abe had….”A presence”…..And that alone is enough to get the temperature up a degree. 😉

To me pink is such a versatile color. I have always loved it in splashes in my work or sometimes as the entire focal point. It can be oh so sexy when seen on lips or lingerie. Or it can be cute and girly for a nursery. It can create a soft calming feel or some serious drama. There is no need to ever shy away from pink. It works for both masculine and feminine energy. It is the new red.
Soft and Delicate Pink:
Whatever your passion for pink….display or wear it with confidence!
