Stephanie's Art Book arrived and
it was so beautiful I didn't know what to do.
Stephanie wants to see what inspires me.
So I did what I do...draw pictures to color.
A picture of me,
my beloved Mary,
My admired Frida.
This photo, well, it's the best I can do...
'The Faces of Eve"
I wanted to show the blessing of Mary on us all with the blue in our hair.
The pear instead of an apple.
Women are not scorned...they are honored in my art.
I know I repeat myself, in my art and
in my words.
But repetition is good for the soul.
Repetition, if you love what you are doing,
is pleasant, comforting and
I painted this...after playing in Stephanie's book:
I copy myself all of the time...
I don't think it's a bad thing to practice, practice, practice.
learn, learn, learn.
Every time I copy myself, I am pleased.
And when I honor Frida
She is more than pleased.
She loves her green eyes,
her earring from Picasso,
her hair bow,
her hair undone.
Love for another
and love for One'self.
Someday, I will be brave.
To people that scare me.
