Description She could bear and wouldn't lookat the wrinkles on her skinshe cranked up this, and shored up thatonly be be worse than shehad ever been.I think that the hardest thing for me to do with this piece was title it. I wanted to call it Post Menopause Art or something along those lines. All the while I was working on it I kept think gosh she looks like Suzeanne Sommers. When I was preparing it for print I saw for the first time the word Age on her thigh. (it had been part of an antique cigar tin I had called PORTAGE) That sealed the deal for me. On a more serious note, it is yet another piece of the Visual Diary of the journey to the Edge of Dysphoria It is another likely outcome of a world left with no more than Man as God. We will tweak, and twist and improve by any means possible our aging carcasses. Because we are all about appearances and youth. I would love to learn to see us as God sees us...beauty in the hoary heads and wrinkled faces.
Alma Lee, GREEN BAY, WI Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement I am an artist and a poet, living in a small community in Wisconsin with the love of my life, my husband Steve and the always-joyous presence of my two beloved dogs Dixson and Tripper.
I have loved art longer than life and failed and succeeded in both often. Leonardo da Vinci said; "Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art." Concerning my work I have found no truer statement. What I create is a direct expression of the governing spirit within in me. Be it light, I pour out its overflow, be it darkness, I wrestle to relinquish it to the light. Christ has shown me the beauty in both.
Recently color pencil and markers have become my weapon of choice, but in the not so distant past I have drawn and created my art digitally. Now more than not, I choose to employ them both. You can buy my originals on Boundless Gallery, Ebay, Redbubble and www.Esty.com
