My haircut is a version of this Vidal Sassoon cut from the 1960s.
I also waited about 6-8 months on buying this retro piece of artwork. It was hanging in a sort of sketchy used furniture/appliances place in my neighborhood. I kept telling myself "Oh, you don't need that thing. You have plenty of your own art!"
I went back a few weeks ago and it was still there. I guess I really did need it. Who else was going to give this crazy thing a home?!
It's funny how nearly everything I have right now is orange, yellow, brown but that's my "thing" at the moment. Most artists go through "things" like that, I suppose I'm no exception.
Orange has much symbolism, actually. According to Color-wheel-pro.com, it's a color associated with "joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation." Right when I started seeing Max, I had a dream that I was wearing all orange. I was coming out of a creatively stagnant period of time in my life, right before I got super-serious about Manic Pop in Spring of 2012 so orange is quite fitting. It's an exciting color and the site also says that "Orange increases oxygen supply to the brain, produces an invigorating effect, and stimulates mental activity." Hmm. Just the boost I needed at exactly the right time!
Who would have thought?
