“A cultivated style would be like a mask.  Everybody knows it’s a mask, and sooner or later you must show yourself, or at least, you show yourself as someone who could not afford to show himself, and so created something to hide behind.  You do not create a style.  You work, and develop yourself; your style is an emanation from your own being.”  Katherine Anne Porter

I’m pretty good at hiding.  My husband doesn’t quite get why most of my “self portraits” are so abstract and vague.  The purpose of participating in this challenge is so that I will be forced out of my comfort zone and take some risks . . . and hopefully in the process find more of my inner muse.  I’ve always felt myself to be a Creative, but have always struggled with expressing that creativity.  And this despite the fact that people that know me think I am very creative!  Therein lies the conundrum I face every day . . . how to shut off my inner critique and trust in the flow of free expression.

For this self portrait, I positioned myself behind a patio chair.  I thought my face would actually show through some, but mostly you see the color from my shirt, and the impressions from my face pushing on the fabric.  I took it in to PhotoShop and processed it with Topaz Labs plug-ins as well as a couple of PhotoShop’s built in effects.

“Most action is based on redemption and revenge, and that’s a formula. Moby Dick was formula. It’s how you get to the conclusion that makes it interesting.”  Sylvester Stallone

Today was a SLOTH kind of day.  After all the busi-ness off the last month or so since MIL fell and broke her hip – it was heaven to just do nothing.  So I did something I seldom do – I curled up on the couch with my warm socks and blanket (it was a very cold and wet day), and my iPad.  These two photos are again the result of playing around with the PhotoShop Touch App.  It’s growing on me!  Can you guess what show I’m watching?? Love this guy!

“All my fans tell me what a glamorous life I have, but I tell them how hard I work and how many nights I spend alone with my dogs, eating chicken pot pie in my bedroom.” Shannen Doherty

Finally home, with CostCo Chicken Pot Pie in the oven for dinner.  It’s all I have the energy for tonight.  Decided to take this shot with my iPad, and fiddled again with PhotoShop Touch App while watching TV and catching up on Survivor.  (Yep – HUGE Survivor Fan!)
