Carole Foret (Claire Kayser) & Wine Painting

I was looking for something fun for my header to bring in the New Year. While googlin' I found this fantastic photo (Libertys seen in the header) taken by uber-talented artist Carole Foret. I had not heard of her before (obviously Annie Leibowitz knows her), so I dug a little deeper. Carole is a painter and photographer from Athens, Alabama. I want to run away and create with Carole. I want her accent to rub off on me. (plus I'm going there to steal her sister's camera lens) I love an Alabama accent - it's my all time favorite kind! Her dog Gus even talks this way. (watch 44 sec. video) You can also learn her painting techniques on her YouTube channel. And Wine and Paint Parties! Come on! Be still my heart! Oh my! And to my surprise we all get 2 for the price of 1....Carole is an indentical twin! Check out her and Claire's website - get ready to boogey! (Did you notice they both have 2009's Top Hair Style Trend? - The dark and chic Pixie Cut!)
