|This is my mom - circa 1964. This is before I was born, but kind of the image I have of her in my head. Smiling, fun glasses, outdoors.|
I did this page yesterday for my art journal - I have had the image for a long time, but I had been thinking I would use it in my more Teesha Moore-style journal and hadn't glued it down - I think I didn't want to alter the photo for some reason. I decided yesterday to put it in my other journal because I am not as compelled to alter the magazine images - these are just for me and for my own sense of enjoyment and pleasure. It meets a whole different need. I love the photo because it shows such different kinds of beauty from different parts of the world and culture. I know that it was an ad for a special Jessica Simpson did on Beauty. I did not see the special, nor am I a fan of Jessica Simpson, however, I did like that she was examining the cultural meaning and impact of beauty standards. I was hoping to do more art journal stuff yesterday, but I didn't.
