Secrets


I have been so busy making jewelry that I just had to stop and so something else...just a minor detour....I worked feverishly on pages for a calendar round robin and then stopped. My soul yearned to be me, yearned to journal. So I took my art journal out and did a page. I felt so free once I was done.

Secrets...why secrets? Because we all have secrets. Secret desires, secret thoughts, just secrets that are only known to us. That is what makes us mysterious, interesting and very complicated. On the opposite page I have written, "Reality is, beneath it all, we are all really the same."

Lorraine..I LOVE this!! I love the pale imagery that fits in so well with the softness and gentleness of whispered secrets. What a fabulous piece!!

Lorraine, This is so beautiful and dreamy. It's always good to take a break, and do something different. I just looked at some of your jewelry, and wow, you have made some gorgeous pieces.

this is so lovely, lorraine. it's soft but also mysterious. i like the long dark tear down the left-hand side juxtaposed against the dreamy whites of the image of the girl (i think it is amber valleta). on the back of my truck i have a chrome skull in the trailer hitch. when i first got it my very mild-mannered ultra-suburban friends gave me the ole' eye roll. i just smiled. i bought it as a reminder of just what you said here, that underneath the skin we are all the same.

Oh, Lorraine, this is fabulous! I really relate to your comments about needing a minor detour and yearning to be you. I have been there lately as well, and this really speaks to me.
