Before I made the dog image that set me on the path to creating Uncommon Creatures, I was fiddling around with two photographs.
One was a little girl with a stuffed lion. I thought it was sweet and bleak at the same time.
Now that I’m looking at it, I realize it’s mostly bleak. And that I identify with that little girl. She looks, or at least the back of her head does, like me at that age, but mostly I can feel the loneliness and isolation wafting off her. I wanted to give some color back to her. To brighten her world and offer some relief. So I made these:
Hmmm. I think I might have left her looking bleak. Maybe there’s nothing I can do about her situation, which makes me sad, so I’m moving on to the other picture I started with:
I give you Llama Eating a Table. This image cracked me up, which I guess I needed after the other picture. Plus, it reminded me of our old coffee table which had chew marks all around the top from SK13.
I made these and the colors make me happy:
I will leave you with llama.
