Wild At Heart

 "Art is anything you can get away with." Andy Warhol.

He wasn't kidding. His love of pop culture, his quirky, off the beaten path life, inspires us all. 
He admitted to being "deeply superficial." Gotta love the honesty.
He was a risk taker, the odd man out, an artist that would be revered, copied and adored for decades.
This young girl, defiant & naive, skipped high school graduation, in search of Fame & Ave. B.
I couldn't wait to experience the pulse, the electricity, the creativity, art on every corner. New York will always be the place that set me free. Reminiscent of three am nights at Limelight, the edgy, dark club, inside a gothic church, where you could be an individual. Women & men, in full makeup, danced, wild, naked and free. An ingenue, up on a box, dressed in fish nets, chains, with crazy golden locks belted out tunes until the sun came up. Madonna, before she was Madonna, was smack dab in the eye of the storm. I had arrived. The city was tingling, raw and bursting with talent. It was infectious.
Andy Warhol paved the way, for all us country girls & boys, with big dreams.
Nars, the master of colour followed suit. I love Nars Cosmetics, beautiful, bold color, creativity at its finest. Nars' Andy Warhol line, is sheer brilliance. 15 minutes comes back around. Nars, take a bow.

Thanks for the chance to relive the memories and shine in the sun.

Hurry, it'll be gone before you know it.
