Mag 107, 3/4/12 ...Set, Go-

                                                                                          image by Sarolta Ban

   She wondered how the artist had done it- did he magnify a photograph
trace lightly on the canvas and then begin to deal with light and shade of skin pigments ?
    Sarah felt a shiver go down her spine. This show, was all to drive home a point
about getting honest with self and others.
    She rather liked the painting for just what it was a portrait. Sometimes you look in
 the mirror and wonder- is that really me and what is it I am really feeling ?
   Sarah sighed, fifteen larger than life paintings- putting up front and in your face-
rather clear moods and feelings; for all the world to see. This was only the first one.
She gave her collar a jerk up and the brim of her hat a tug down.... READY ?

Interesting. It seems our exterior hardly matches the interior. :) Nice work.

IZZY, since you may not see this, my response to your comment on 4th Dimension:

"IZZY, as soon as I read your comment, I changed the last paragraph by throwing away some unnecessary words.
Thanks! (Did I hear you say, "Tweet"???) I appreciate. You are nice Peep!

Lydia said...

Wow, so you saw the person in the hat as a woman! That fascinates me and gives a whole new dimension to your Mag.

Those are weird moments when I look at myself in the mirror and wonder who she really is....
