This was the only piece accepted at this year’s Ohio State Fair. I am super glad that I got this in, but I was very disappointed that my butterfly print collage didn’t make it. I was joking with a friend that perhaps it wasn’t “dark” enough, and perhaps if the butterflies were bloody the judge might have liked it better. So, after I went through the stages of rejection: disbelief, sadness, confusion, & self doubt, I made it to humor. Then I took it to the frame shop and treated myself to a super kick-ass frame with non reflective glass and everything! Take that fair judge! 😉
Both are beautiful in very different ways! One is dark, traditional with great symmetry and effect (almost foerboding like Van Gough’s crows in a field) I love the little yellow sparks of light in the foreground and the other flamboyant, colorful, imaginative and joyful full of hope and beauty. At least that is what I see 🙂 Your talent is amazing! Thank you so very much for sharing! xoxox
Thank you Joni!!! xox
Give me the butterflies any time! You are one very talented lady. At least you now have it on your wall 🙂
Thank you!!! 😉
hey: yer in either a really tuff? state, or perhaps a color-blind one, or a beauty-blind one. you’d kikkasss in any other state!
😉 Thank you very much! I just wish I knew why. But alas, gotta love the great mysteries of life!
