Journal Time

Was journal time today-was feeling way off kilter- we had a storm early Thursday morning with 100mph winds and it took out some of our trees- that is always heartbreaking to me and then backbreaking dealing with it all and then the crazy week politically - it's almost hard to escape it- so needed my safe place to work in. This title is Shortcut- It is about many things but the quote is from what Orly Avineri said in the class I was in of hers in April- wow can it be that long ago already? I had not set out to do this but it is what came out and I am feeling good about it. I am starting to get more comfortable using my own face in my work- I struggle as I was told that doing that was vain ( thank you mother- I believed you for years) I have to say I am looking and reading Erin Faith Allen's incredible book The Underneath-( and by the way that book is nothing short of deep and she has bared her soul) reading of her doing self portraits has stuck with me. So thank you Orly Avineri https://oneartistjournal.com/ and thank you Erin Faith Allen. http://www.erinfaithallen.com/
