Illustration Salad (for no particular reason other than to show them up)

Jumping out of my plié

I had this audition the other day,
it wasn't easy getting out of bed,
I stretched, chasséd, while getting dressed,
not feeling anxious for a single breath.

All of a sudden room serviced knocked,
"I did not order this soggy bread!",
"I'm sorry madame, won't happen again",
I slammed the door in his puzzled face.

I lost my mojo, now tell me what?
"Get back in bed!" the voices cried,
I wrapped myself in terrycloth,
and jetéd right back to my fluffy stage.

Master's Mystery Art Show (2011)

FIU delegate: How did you end up here?
Moi: one beautiful tropical day, I was minding my own business, as I always do, when opportunity knocked. She looked gorgeous! You should have seen her hair.
FIU delegate: Who?
Moi: Op-por-tu-ni-ty... Have you never met her? 
FIU delegate: and what did she have to say?
Moi: "Neo, you're the one"
FIU delegate: Huh?!
FIU delegate: How did you react to that?
Moi: I told her "You're crazy lady... now take your red pill and follow the white rabbit"... and so she did.
FIU delegate: and then what happened?
Moi: She started chasing after poor Snowball like a madwoman!
FIU delegate: Oh boy, why did I ask?.. And then what happened?
Moi: Well (I said, looking smarter than ever) I noticed the paper and t-shirt she had dropped and picked them up.
FIU delegate: and...
Moi: And I started painting on them (My smile shinned so brightly that any star would have been jealous).
FIU delegate: Can I see them?
Moi: Show me yours, I'll show you mine...

Kaleidoscopic t-shirt.
Let's get (just a tiny bit) serious now, because this is really cool: on Wednesday, November 30th the seventh Master's Mystery Art Show will be held at The Ritz Carlton South Beach (FL). It is one of the most interesting events of the Miami Art Season.

More than 1,000 original artworks are donated by artists and sold to the public for the fixed price of $50, to benefit Florida International University's Master of Fine Arts program. 
The Mystery is that the name of the artist for each work is kept secret during the exhibition, only to be revealed at the completion of the sale (drumroll...TA DAH!!!)

It would be fantastic to see everyone there, mingling and supporting the arts.

I know... I'm already showing mine... don't blame the sinner, blame the sin.
