Middle-Aged Crazy Art Lady Strikes Again

This time, she’s more like Late Middle-Aged or Early-Old Crazy Art Lady.

She’s just turned fifty-nine. Fifty-nine.

How can that be?

Her Inner (and often Outer) Child

is seven.

Two years ago

MACAL (short for Middle-Aged Crazy Art Lady) shared her

impromptu beach sculptural installations.

plastic, shelly, junky, funky, probably smelly and washed away by now

Two years ago, she told you of her Bad Hair Decade. Decade. Here’s her not-quite-so-bad impromptu hair sculptural installation from this year.

She told of a lowered self-consciousness quotient – one of the redeeming features of this Late-Middle-Early-Old age.

She introduced Julia Cameron’s notion of the Artist Date. This is a wonderful wonderful notion.

on an unsuspecting beach near you

some time soon.
