As I mentioned, I am cleaning the studio… before and after pix to come, but for now, some still lifes from bulletin board, fridge, and work tables…
I suppose each image provides a To Do List item with it — for the above? Find original collage of “MYSTERY/BELOVED/FLOW/HERE” and transfer to fabric. Query — where has the sex gone from my work?!!
TO DO Item for this picture — find collage series (there were six, I think) and go make color copies — play with scale and group together as originally intended. Transfer better ones to fabric and stitch.
The actress shown is Pam Grier (she is riding a roller coaster), clipped from magazine after seeing and loving the movie she starred in along with Samuel L. Jackson — Jackie Brown.
This collage had something to do with surrender and female power and fertility — I love the inclusion of a photo of little Danny (not part of the collage) taken at cousin Emily’s birthday party years ago, sitting astride a pony for the very first time, all aglow with the novelty and wonder of it…
To Do Item for this picture — start assembling fabrics for another elephant quilt. I am not done with them yet!
To Do Item for this still life is not crafty so much as psychological — Get The Queen Out of The Shadow!!!! That little drawing, done by me at around age eight, belongs in the light of day — don’t you agree? Perhaps I should make a few tiaras… they could always go on a doll!
Joker needs a body; Archbishop, forgiveness.
These guys, bless their little hearts, just ask to be appreciated!!
