Pretty much all I could think about today was my ribs. They decided to remind me that I have Ankylosing Spondylitis – something I try to forget most days. But it’s been a strange spring in Colorado and we’re still getting snow flurries so maybe it was the weather, or maybe the amount of time I’m spending in my studio at the computer. Whatever the “cause” – it was taking up a bit of mental capacity today so it started me thinking of images of – you guessed it – ribs.
I had thoughts of fish skeletons and spinal columns turned into apples. So I sat down to sketch my thoughts and I was not feeling the groove of the initial idea.
Sometimes that is when a really interesting image comes out. Some of you may remember the closest I’ve come to failing my 365 days journey was on Day 4 – yes – a sad truth. On Day 4, midnight was bearing down on me quickly because I had the idea to make a mosaic with 400 tiny pieces of magazine images! I managed to get my image posted but it was down to the wire. I think I may have quit on that day if I had failed to get it posted in time so I thank my dear, sweet husband for rolling up his sleeves and slicing up colors for me.
Tonight when I told him my plan – at 8:30 pm he gave me that look. That wonderful, annoying and knowing look – because he was put into service again tonight bless his heart. I consider him a bit of a sous chef on occasion!
Now that is a slice of my life !
Day 214 was created in sliced of magazine ads. Vogue, Costal Living, and House Beautiful mostly 🙂
