Worlds Apart, on the same island

October just ended and now its November. Fall leaves smother grey road, decorate the breeze and clog gutters around the Muse theater on the north side of La Crosse. The first weekend was sold out as I played Ginger in the Muse’s production of “Gilligan’s Island.” I met new people and laughed hard on stage with fellow cast mates. It was by far my favorite show I’ve acted in due to the cheesy lines and crazy Jessica-rabbit-esque character I played. I realized the first week I LOVED putting on the make-up for Ginger prior to performing. The make-up transformed me; channeling my inner Ginger; a high society Hollywood starlet. And no amount of glitter, rhinestones, blush, cleavage or flowery perfume was enough! After-all I shook my cleavage in lucky men’s faces each night…and made them blush and shirk so I needed that perfume! Needless to say it was a hit!

The crowd loved us each so much we had a few walk onto stage. Maybe it was the wine but the crowd wooted and hollered. In years past while in high school and after specifically around the time of my birthday I was in a play. That play I participated in opened so of course this time I had that reminiscent birthday’s of past feeling which is always a stomach full of Butterfly’s, peaking through the curtain at the sea of nameless faces.

Its true I was getting rather weary during the play an eager to start on my new artistic endeavors… a welcomed cloud that shadows most of my thoughts) on top of which I work 6 days a week at the Chaseburg post-office. Little did I know everything was about to fall into place. This is an announcement that I finally have a Pop-up studio space that I also will be curating gallery exhibits in! So this is VERY exciting news for me and art lovers! On My site and blog in intend to inform you all of my studio address and upcoming exhibits soon! Also I have been shooting images my painted tarot series for about a year now. Its a piling work in progress to create my own tarot deck but great news is I am about to start painting it! Further more I am going to be working with Downtown Main street to help create an artist Pop-up Co-op for this November -December! All good things…Stay tuned for more details. Peace & gratitude -Ashton
