Ode to Prince

Making Doves Cry

I was a teenager in the 80’s. I rocked BIG HAIR big parachute pants and NEON colors !

Prince was one of my favorites! I showed up at my prom in a beat up Van NOT a LIMO

The van had  a kick-ass sound system installed by my prom date Carl!

( yeah I know Carl +Carole gag me with a spoon as they would say! )

Shawn was our chauffer/chaperone to make sure we did not get too crazy although we were blasting Prince’s LET’S GET CRAZY as well pulled up the hotel entrance where the prom was being held. I can still see Shawn in his cut off denim shorts and t-shirt with a tuxedo painted on the front gallantly open the side door to the van!

I’m still close friends with Carl and most of my close knit high school group!

Prince will forever have a piece of my heart !

You can see every single step how I made this sculpture on the Makin’s Clay site.

What was your fondest memory in High School?
