Dust Art

Here's something I never really thought of: Dust Art. The idea is to draw or paint detailed pictures in that film of dust that coats the back window of cars after a drive down a dusty road. To me it looks a lot like working with scratchboard.

Recently I was introduced to dust art through a post on Smallpax by Michaela Lawless (and we're not going to get into how I wish so hard that my last name was 'Lawless' -Ben Lawless... oh man). Anyway, she posted this sock-off-knocking picture of her own dust art:



Good show, Lawless!

ROFL. I have to admit that "Lawless" (now my maiden name) was a really fun last name to have - especially during my years at TAC. :)

And I must admit how much I love my married name. "Molly Lawless"... isn't there such a nice ring to that? :-)

People I come across (in banks, stores, etc.) always tell me how cool my last name is. The teenager behind the counter of our local pizza joint even gave my husband a free beer because, as he put it, "That is such an awesome last name, man!!"

Wow, where are all these Lawlesses coming from? Are you related? I had no idea that any Lawlesses read my blog!

I bet you periodically do google searches on your name. That's what I do.

Actually, you were already on my google reader list because of Small Pax (that's part of what made it so funny!). Michaela is my niece (and Ria, also new to Small Pax, is my daughter). I guess it's not such a weird coincidence since I encouraged her to join Small Pax. :)

Oh yeah, and I had to point your post to our Lawless e-mail list. Molly is my sister-in-law.

I'm not a Lawless, although we've known the family for twenty years and are "honorary Lawlesses". (I too, came to your blog through Small Pax. Michaela is my Confirmation sponsor.

Wow, you went this far back through the archives and posted a comment?!? You ARE lawless!

It was very interesting for me to read this article. Thanks for it. I like such topics and anything that is connected to them. I definitely want to read a bit more on that blog soon.
