There are two new challenges up this month at Art-Journal-Journey(Frida Khalo) and Mix-It-Monthly(Crazy Dresses). In my limited art time these days I combined them both. Art Journal as process and non-thinking just doing kind of way I created this dress out of fragmented food images and the Frida photo which I altered was actually a childhood photo. Nothing in the perspective is quite right which seems to suit the physically debilitated Frida and the chaos of the dress represents the chaos in all our lives(and that serpent of transformation moving inside us, mine especially lately….where is my head at? Frida for me was also so powerful and a keeper of memory, although not always happy ones, hence the words.
A bit of art heals therapy for me tonight.
And yes I did forget a whole roll of bubble wrap that was tucked in the underneath of the shopping cart! Picture the duh! as I hit my forehead.
