Detail of a painting in progress...
"Inside the Mirror, Looking out"
...Looking in the mirror is an interesting activity...alternatively at times: scary, illuminating, lonely, or peaceful. Sometimes we see ourselves looking back, sometimes a younger or older version of ourselves. It could even be a stranger...
At times, we see a novel, a short story or poem...even an off-kilter limerick could fit the moment in time.
Mirrors sometimes reflect what we want to see, sometimes quite the opposite.
Always, though, it is only a fragmentary and flipped version of ourselves
at a moment in time.
What would our image in the mirror look like if we could see a composite of what the world sees when it looks at us?
Therein lies the mystery.

As I create (painting, sculpture, writing), I often lose track of the fact that everything I make is a part of me, my autobiography. All of it is and will always be/become 'pieces and parts' of the whole: from the inside, OUT. Our truest view in the mirror, if you will...
I am definitely a work in progress, an evolution of a theme, a packet of potential, a convergence of all that I think, dream, say, create, do, and refrain from doing.
So, as I keep pushing, discovering, and believing, I need to remember that I am a woman and a mother and a work in progress... I must remember that I can recreate myself and my reflection with another stroke of the brush, another splash of color, another smile, kindness or laugh. The mirror is in my own hands.
What do I and what do you want your ultimate reflection and story to convey?... Let us matter and make a difference together, shall we?
....stay tuned for the next glimpse in my mirror
