  1. i love the "laugh-in" and "bewitched" polaroids. how does she make them? great web site, btw.

  2. gecker's site, i mean.

    (but the old gold is cool, too.)

  3. yeah those are nice little gems. she's got some serious love for goldie. i'm not exactly sure how they're done, maybe she'll let us know...

  4. Thanks dubz! I'm glad you like them. I collage photos on top of the polaroids. It's really fun but I'm not sure what I'll do now that polaroid film is gone.

  5. you could scan a polaroid as a template and place digital images inside the frame, maybe? not the same in person but as jpegs they'd still be cool.

  6. buy as much as you can now and freeze it.

  7. these are SO nice-- i esp. like the last, blue piece. Can I see them in person next time we're in town?!!

  8. can't wait for the interview. enjoying the old gold. love you guys. james e.

  9. Hey dubz thanks for the idea. never thought of doing another format in the same genre, I am sort of doing that in the paintings but sans frame-i like its possibilities.

    I think the freezing thing sounds good too, I used to refrigerate all the film but freezing sounds way better. thanks PB!

    Hey gianna, thanks! come on over anytime...let's make a plan! good luck with the show this weekend.

    James e! thanks for checking the post!

  10. i just went to your website and looked at all your work and i LOVE it.

  11. Thanks for checking out the site Martin! I'm really glad you like the work.
