And wear really bad wigs!

Fair Anxiety

Okay, I’ve been entering stuff in the L.A. County Fair for years and I’ve always won something. So why this year am I obsessing about whether I’ve won anything. Does it matter in the grand scheme of things, No. But I’m still obsessing and I never have before.

So at the opening bell next Friday I’ll pay my dollar and run but it’s still stupid. Why does it mean so much? The first year I didn’t even go out there til the last day and I won a ribbon for all 4 things I entered. I even got a blue ribbon for my fused glass piece of Stonehenge and three 2nd place ribbons for silver work, niobium and for a gourd drum I made. And except for last year when I didn’t enter because Cam was more in my thoughts and heart than making silly pieces of jewelry it’s been no big deal. Just something to make myself feel like I can still take chances and learn something.

Not this year, this year it’s important.

Another pioneer gone

Tee Corinne – Artist, Photographer, Writer

(1943-2006)

The Encyclopedia of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender & Queer

Culture describes Tee Corinne as “the shy superstar of lesbian

erotica”a gifted and versatile artist, especially known
for her frank and sensuous depictions of lesbian sex.

Also from the Encyclopedia the following four paragraphs:

A gifted and versatile artist, Tee Corinne worked with photography,

line drawing, paint, sculpture, ceramics and printing, and she also

published erotic fiction and poetry and reviews. Favorite cover artist for lesbian publisher Naiad, and author of the famous Cunt Coloring Book (the first version of which was published in 1975, but which was reissued as Labiaflowers in 1981), Corinne’s work is found on bookshelves across the lesbian nation.

Born Linda Tee Cutchin on November 3, 1943, in St. Petersburg,

Florida, Tee Corinne attended Newcomb College of Tulane University

before obtaining her B. A. from the University of South Florida (1965)

and her Master of Fine Arts from the Pratt Institute (1968). After a seven-year marriage, she became the shy superstar of lesbian erotica . . .

Corinne died at her home in Oregon on August 27, 2006, after a valiant struggle with liver cancer. She was preceded in death by her longtime partner, Beverly Brown.

In her honor Moonforce Media established the Tee A. Corinne Prize for Lesbian Media Artists. Corinne left her manuscripts and other material

to the University of Oregon Libraries.
