Father








Playing in photoshop with the charcoal drawing I made from a projected slide of my father holding me. Eggs - whole, and broken open, constellations, areolae, the universe, brains, an ovum being fertilized, eyes, veiny retinas....all these images emerged as I adjusted levels and color balance.....

I have to blurt out picnik.com--before I ever found my way around photoshop, I used picnik and I still do for certain things!

I like the drawing of Dad holding you--captures Dad in a simple line--looks so familiar. I always think of the word familiar when thinking about family--same word origin I guess.

I'm rambling and the word V is rablamme!
