Hat’s On!

(Click any image to open full gallery)

Normally we “take our hats off” to someone we salute. In this case we “put our hats ON” in support of a mutual friend and soon-to-be-divorcée—and PARTIED through a 4-course gourmet-catered dinner hosted by our hat aficionado and hostess with the ‘mostess’, Kay.

This super addictive technique (learned from Carla Sonheim) involves quickly drawing with ink using droppers, and immediately blotting the wet lines with toilet paper. The uncontrollable results make laughable caricatures. None of these resembles its reference photo, but that’s not the point. It’s all for the fun of it—just like the party. Cheers!

  2. These are fantastic. What a wonderful way to celebrate a new transition into a phase of life that many find liberating but difficult at the same time. With friends like you I’m sure you’re making the move easier and more palatable.
