I finally finished attaching my beaded Tawny to the sofa, and Blue Man Group stopped by to help me celebrate:) Blue Man Group are 3 mute performance artists who go everywhere dressed in blue paint and black clothing. You may recognize them from their appearance in several Intel Pentium IV television commercials. Blue Man started out performing on the streets of New York in the 1980’s but since then, they have grown into a rather large organization with shows in New York, Boston, Chicago, and Las Vegas. Another show is scheduled to open in Orlando this summer. And, if you happen to be in Europe, you can also catch them in either Berlin or London.
My friend Dave works for Blue Man here in Boston, so I’ve seen the show a few times, and it is phenomenal. The blue men play strange musical instruments made out of PVC pipes, and they use a lot of percussion in their music, as well. I love the blue men because they really get the audience to participate in their shows. But, I will admit that when they walk around the audience and search for the perfect participant, I am praying that they don’t pick me. LOL.
Now, the question of the day is, do you think the Blue Men painted the painting that beaded Julie is holding? Or did she do it herself??
I know that RockDog is dying to know how I do these photos everyday, so here’s just a glimpse into the life of an artist who:
a) lives alone
b) is impulsively creativec) doesn’t sleep much
d) has a lot of time to kill this month
For this particular photo, the paper cut-outs were suspended on the end of a piece of wire. Then, I used some old acrylic craft paint and just squeezed it out onto a piece of painted paper. This photo was taken while the paint was wet, and to answer your question, no paint got on the beads. The duplicate images were done in Photoshop just for fun.
Which colour Blue Man is your favourite??
If you would like to make a mess like Blue Man Group does (without actually making a mess like I did), check out their website. You can create your own work of art using virtual products like Jell-O, paint balloons, marshmallows, confetti, and finger paint HERE. Have fun:)
Also, please help me decide what to bead next by participating in the poll at the top of my sidebar. Thank you=:)
