Confidence

Playing with stretching. As fun as the leaves were I felt it was getting away from the spine feel I was really liking. It was hiding the fact that it was a back – my back. I played with the exploding red around my backside, thinking my body was radiating energy, but I really think I wanted the red heat of the pieces hugging my seat ad torso and bringing energy to the trees growing out of my back. I almost want to print this on leather and nail it to some wood.

The sun has been hiding and we’ve had some storms. It raked through the living room one day and I caught the collage in this state, which I thought was pretty cool and dramatic.

Inching on the progress for this. I know I need to push this somehow. After a long day waiting to see if I’d be chosen for a jury  (and not – phew!), I made a badass ratatouille, had it with a big glass of Cabernet, turned on some Castle, and made these small additions. Stay tuned!

To go with my feeling badass and taking charge of my path in life, I re-visited this image and added to it a photo of a thin tree I saw outside of an REI store. It’s as if my backbone is strengthening, and I’m gaining power just being who I am – unapologetically.

The body is is mine. It was for a photography class I took where we were asked to imitate a photographer’s work. I chose Lee Miller‘s Nude Bent Forward. She was a model for and collaborator with Man Ray, who went on to be a war photographer during World  War II. From what I remember reading, She wanted to take the angel of on surrealism in a different way than Man Ray did (not just have naked bodies contorting and totally seeing that they were naked bodies contorting), I have to say, I respect Miss Miller’s idea on taking on this point of view.
