"all there in black and white"


I've been thinking about and working on this piece awhile now. I may add more words as they come to me,(mental pause). I took an old pic of myself and turned it into B&W,I am such a minimalist. The changing of another year set off the toughts of this one. I plan to use alot of older pic's this way as B&W.

"L" you know I am thinking of you and so sad another woman has the same crap to deal with.

So many deep heavy thoughts into such a small young head.

Take a deep sigh and release some of them. That's what I did just now.

I love this piece, Joy! It's so thoughtful, innocent and playful. Makes you think.

Also...I'm so sorry about your mom...I know you must miss her terribly. The woodblock print you did speaks volumes...really lovely.

I love this Joy! How clever of you, and thanks for your supportive words, both here and at my site. I'm also sorry that we share this in common.

Great image and words - I get a strong feeling. B&W is stark - no seduction of color.

Takes guts to go B&W.
