Guess who got into the local paper? :)

I was pretty excited when a photographer from The Patriot News stopped by on Sunday to ask me about the fire hydrant I was painting and snapped a few photos!

Well, "a few photos" might be an understatement- as any photographer knows, you have to get like 500 photos to ensure you have at least one or two presentable ones!

(Click on the newspaper to enlarge and focus it...)

It's too bad I didn't think to give him a dose of "Blue Steel"
while he was shooting me. Ha!

With all the photos being taken, I felt like I was a part-time model (but probably still had to keep my normal job).

What's funny about "Blue Steel" is that all the young kids do it in photos now... but they're not doing it to be funny. I'm not on MySpace, but I bet you wouldn't have to browse around on there very long before you'd find a healthy overdose of Blue Steel.

Samantha is a Celebrity!!!! Can I have your autograph? Oh, I forgot, I have it already on my Birthday card :-)

You are the BEST!

What's "Blue Steel"... is it a Ben Stiller pose? I'm sorry, I'm not hip with TV 'cauz I don't watch it.

I've been trying to figure out exactly where these fire hydrants are located. Can you give me a nearby address for the one you painted?

THANK you all so much!!!

Doris, yes blue steel is from the movie Zoolander- which is probably stupid, but is hilarious and one of my faves.

sarasophia thank you, that is so sweet!!

Jason, the hydrants are in downtown harrisburg- mine is at market & front streets :)

I managed to find your artwork and lots of others in Downtown Harrisburg.
