"If this is truly your wish here's my advice for you."
"A mermaid my be beautiful but she's dangerous too,
A ghost may be frightening but was a person like you."
They say Memento Mori, a warning to all."
It's Ok to show it, who cares what we think?
Life has a duality pretty pictures can't hide,
And as an artist remember that beauty comes from inside." This last collage is a Karen door. Since I don't have Karen's OK to show her face on my blog the picture above shows the door open representing the beauty inside her.
We all want to create beauty with our art. But that's just not life. If we are to be artists and " hold the mirror up to nature" as Shakespeare says then we must address both the dark and light within us all. My thought, respectfully, is that if Karen wants to be truly bold then she should address the darker side once in awhile. I am in hopes that when she does this everything she was hoping to change in her art will fall right into place.
And for the record: No-I am not a poet and I definately know it.
Connie-over and out.
