“CALLIGRAPHIC STRUT”, 40″ x 30″, 1995, m/m


This past weekend was GAY PRIDE here in my beloved Santa Fe.

The vibe was pure ecstasy on the heels of the Supreme Court’s historic decision.

I rolled down to the plaza to get some of the goodness.

There was a tall guy on roller blades dressed in a unitard covered in 1″ round silver sequins.

His face and hands were painted silver as well.

Over one shoulder hung what looked like a small tank gardeners use to spray pesticide but his was filled with water..

The guy held the spray nozzle with one hand and was going around giving unsuspecting people a spray behind their ears!

He came to me and decided I needed a bit more of his magic and sprayed delicately behind my ears, on my wrists, back of my neck and on my feet.

It was so startlingly sexy, kind, shocking, creative and fun!!!!!!

Healing comes in surprising guises.

I loved that Silver Man.

It made me so happy I just had to tell you.

I adore my town.

    Maybe he was a MER-MAN, gliding and slipping through the shoals and the crowds , stopping briefly and then a glint of silver and gone?

    I saw Silver Man, too —in fact, I saw his reaction when an evangelical preacher came up and started talking to him about being saved. Actually the preacher wasn’t trying to save anyone—he was just trying to make his point and be RIGHT. Silver Man sprayed him and said in a sing-gong voice, “Holy water, get your holy water right here. . . .” It was the perfect response.

    Lovely piece, Cathy! So great to see you the other day.
