Mixed Media Memoirs

I felt so honoured when Melba asked me to host this week's question at Mixed Media Memoirs. I love this weekly challenge that blends words, art and personal exploration. One of the things I love most about it is that no topic is every closed! You can dig into whatever grabs you, and you can do it in your own time.

This is a picture of me combined with a painting I made. I've answered the question here. What will being off balance inspire you to create?

PS. Looking at the painting today, I think I must get off balance when an "e" kicks me in the butt!

What an absolutely gorgeous piece of art!!! How did you take that pic? I totally love it, its phenominal.

Reminds me of "The Fool" card a bit :)

Yes! It is like the fool card isn't it Shannon? I adore this! Did you print the image of you with your printer? What kind of paints did you use? They look like oils but I can't be sure.

I love it Jamie, you are such an artist. That's funny about "e", I'll have to keep my eye on him, LOL.

YEs, this does have the archtypal quality of a tarot card. You did a beautiful job. I feel my crayons calling my name from the other room. I want to blog this.
