Sorry about the glare. 11"x11" yupo, acrylic, ink, stencil and collage. A favorite line in a Bob Dylan song "It's not dark yet but it's getting there" rings true to my fascination and love of dusk. In ancient times twilight was perceived beginning at the sighting of the first three stars in the sky. The anticipation of nightfall is intriguing to me...the in between of day and night....again, threshold. It brings up memories, and longings for me. In this piece I added stars cut out of a thin piece of lino and then stars cut away in another piece of lino. I have two more in this series and two more lyrics from favorite songs have come up for me as inner conversation.
On a personal note, Pablo is in Las Vegas researching for his book (life is good!) and I have been home re-inventing my appearance. I'm tired of coloring my hair so I had the hairdresser pull out the remaining color...I'm now mostly white with a touch of blond...my hairstyle is buzzed in the back and bangs and side sweep in the front...a relaxed 'Rihana' style. ! I also am about five shades darker as I used a self-tanning product. I miss Pablo but I have also taken this time for cooking all my favorites...eggplant, Mediterranean dishes that he isn't crazy about. I have two more days of free time so I might just rearrange some furniture?Someone will have some adjusting to do on homecoming! ha
