Back To Work And A New Print Series ~

Good Morning:

Slowly slowly I am finding my way back to work.  I have been shuffling through some images and playing around with my favorite 1920s Ballerina photo.  She is calling to be used in a new piece ~ 

Much of my time has been spent on a copy-editing job for a middle grade trilogy.  But, that's a different story!

Anyway, I've been working on getting a 4 print set together which focuses on my "Weeping Woman" series.  I am happy to say that this new set is in my shop right this very moment!

You see, I have been fascinated by the weeping woman myths and legends all of my life.  Growing up in a Hispanic region, I found my way to the legend of La Llorona at an early age.  I have been in love with her since I was a little girl.

Of course, this love of mine naturally led me to create art pieces that included images of the weeping woman ~

This 4 print set includes:

I admit, I'm partial to these pieces because my daughter is "The Weeping Woman".  She is an amazingly patient girl and is always willing to model for my art.  Also, if you look up top at "Lida's Swan Song", you'll see a gal playing guitar.  That is the actual Lida.  My friend, Shell, was kind enough to let me scan and use this image.  Lida was Shell's great grandmother!  So...all of these pieces have extra special meaning to me.

Anyway, I do hope you like this set.  It feels right for the upcoming season.  A little dark, a little spooky, a little mysterious.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me.

Until Next Time:

I'm really intrigued by the mythology, and this reminds me of my own way of working, how these intangible symbols form the basis of my art. I'm glad to see you are so busy, too! It is nice to catch up....I am only tentatively returning to blogging myself, after what seems like such a long time awol!!

I am also intrigued by the hands which reach into your images. Seems eerily poignant when viewing them altogether like this.

Hope you are well! x

I hope your are well. It's good to see you back, even if only tentatively.

I was just showing my son your work. He's working on a degree toward game development and he's been dabbling in collage work in his photoshop class.

I absolutely adore your work!
