Truth & Beauty
Updated: Feb 29, 2020
Truth & Beauty. This one's rather dark, but then again..... sometimes life gets dark. It was quite difficult to find a way to incorporate Frances' (age 5) sketch. When I tried her in vertical positions, nothing made sense. Not that it totally does now, but I think it tells a story now. It's a story of a wonderfully creative woman who is flying. She's not flying in the traditional sense, with wings like a bird, or in an airplane. She's floating on her back through the trees. Not sure how this will end, but it's better than the alternative.
And, here's the 'beauty' part of the post. I love how the different components work together. She looks a bit worried. There is a choice of conversations. It could be between two people or it could be with herself. "You are so beautiful, it hurts sometimes."
