Journals or 'once again I'm cutting off my head'


Been working in my journals again. This is another "head switch". 
I don't know how to do it with Photo Shop, so I just cut off
my head and glue it onto a picture.


I love this, but I pity the girl who's body I took. :)



Here I'm working with 'color wash inks'.
Not as easy as I thought it would be.


Also using some tissue paper and old 'lay away' receipts that I coffee stained.


My sister Rudi painted the sea horses, I painted the girl.


Me at a fashion shoot for Payless shoes. Ok, not really my photo, but my head again. I even make up a story to go along with the picture.

When I think a picture I paint is particularly ugly,  I do something over the top. In this case, 
I wrote all over this face that I hated. Why do I continue to do this?
Art.
? is it? 
Marcie, are you reading this?
I guess everyone has their own way of expressing themselves 
or diving into a hobby to fill their time. I paint, draw, paste, glue, take pictures, 
cut off my head...
I guess I have to. Because, I've tried to do other things and nothing else makes me as happy.

  2. Brigitte, Everyone needs to put their head on someone else's body once and a while!!! If for nothing else, then for a different perspective! How goes the move? Your new house looks great!
