the misadventures of me...

ODYSSEY - 14 X 14 WOOD BOX

What an odyssey I have recently been on...and here is my interpretation of that odyssey...riding the highs and lows of this thing called life. I have posted my current exhibit 'Soul Dwellings' on my website. It's a very personal artful journey of my life so far. All the images are my black and white photographs that I hand painted mostly with oils, and melded with altered art. The images of me are black and white photographs I took of my shadow self. To tell you the truth, I don't know how these pieces came together...that is how I know they come from my soul and not my head.

I'd also like to tell you about my very talented friend L.E. Shahan who finally set up a blog and is sharing with all who venture to read 'The Misadventures of Jane.' I have been so busy lately that I miss reading a good book and this blog fills the need for some well written short adventures that make you nod your head, giggle or lament. I think you will enjoy the read that is posted every week. She started the blog in August so if you want to read from the beginning click on the August postings. Add it to your subscription list...or click on Blogarithm.com and add all the blogs you want to keep track of.
So my blog entry contains a splattering of misadventures and soul dwellings...after all, we are just passing through...

Angela, if you love THE BEATLES, you have to see ACROSS THE UNIVERSE. Saw it tonight, and it was brilliant. -Amanda

Hi, Angela.

I especially like "Soul Digging" and "Family Tree." The pieces of your exhibit truly invite study - obviously there are some complex emotions and memories going on here. I love that.
Congrats on a fantastic exhibit. I only wish I had seen it in person.

I really like "Passing through"! It was a surprise to see it in your blog!.
Expressing about ourselves is sharing small pieces of memories we keep in our "inner castle". Sometimes we open the gates to free some of them.

I LOVE "Passing Through"...I keep visualizing it as a greeting card and journal cover ;-)
