Extreme photo manips of my living room!
___________Yesterday, Jafabrit posted this comment regarding my blue trees:
"I like that you make us see the familiar in a different way."
I thought about that for a bit, and the thing is, I'm compelled to portray things 'differently' because that's my general perception. Very few things seem really familiar or mundane to me. The world, mostly, is extreme and incredibly foreign (sometimes, in a very good way, sometimes . . . not so much).
My sister, Sharon, once commented that traveling with me was a nightmare, as "you have to comment on every blade of grass along the road." Well, d'uh! I mean, there's dew-kissed grass, grass drifting in the breeze, sun-baked grass, moonlit grass . . .
Friends have teased me about using the term "amazing!" so often. I can't help it; I'm so often amazed at the very existence of things! Color! Texture! Form! Emotion! Music! Words! All of it amazing, a hundred times a day!
Rather than turn this post into a rambling dissertation on "W. J.'s Reality -- Sublime or Ridiculous?" I'll admit that I am, indeed, a stranger in a very strange land, and my creative output reflects that.
