Me and my sweet friend Candace managed to finally get together to do a photo shoot for Violet Folklore, just before she headed off to San Francisco to weave her next daydream. This girl is a child of the 60s at heart, and we have bonded over many a Rolling Stones song and felted hat. Artistic talent runs in her family, and she has extraordinarily clever hands which design amazing clothing, paintings, and beaded/stained glass/dried flower sandals. She also has a purely wacky sense of humor, which I found out the first time we hung out and watched a John Waters film. Sometimes she feels a bit like my twin sister in younger form!
We headed down to the Yuba River, which was like bathwater after a week of scorching summer days. In the last hour before dark-- the famed "photographers hour" we took these amazing pictures. Thanks to Candace, who walked on boulders and steep sandy hills in her high heeled Anna Sui boots, and donned a fuzzy hat in the service of my strange Vision. You are truly a precious soul, and a real Artist through and through. Enjoy!:
She comes in colors everywhere, they're in her hair... she's like a rainbow...
See you in Sam Clam's Disco, Candie!
