The Saga of the Red Glasses

This is a self portrait that I did in a class with Sue Benner. We had them posted on our design wall. One day Freddie Moran came in to check out our work. If you’ve ever met Freddie, you know that she wears very large red eye glasses. She looked at my self-portrait and whipped around and scanned the room and her eyes caught mine and she gave me a big grin.

Well, yesterday, my red glasses broke – not a lost screw – they broke – boo hoo! I went to the Kaiser optometry place where I got the prescription filled. If I wait until June 6th, I can get a new eye exam and credit towards new glasses. In the meantime, I was going to try to super glue them or duct tape them, but I lost the broken part. So I guess I have to live with my bronze wire rims until then.

    Try duck tape…it will hold anything together and will give you a very artistic look!!!

    You better get new red glasses soon, you know how Mia can’t stand it if you’re not wearing them!

    How about a new self portrait with the real glasses sewn on? Or maybe an interesting mobile? Maybe the lenses would make interesting reflections when the sunlight hits them.
