Pretty (Weird) Pictures

I've been making self-portraits using an online photo editing program, Picnik. I like trying to translate what I feel into a visual medium. Also, it gives me something to do when I am stuck to the couch.

Water. I often meditate on water. I imagine I am floating, or sinking, or waves are washing over me. Water is very soothing.

Circuitry. Electrical impulses. Synapses and neurons. Blood and bone.

Pieces. Obvious.

Crumble. Despite my face falling apart, my eyebrows look fantastic. Figures.

Photophobia. Not the fear of, but the aversion to. Despite the dark, halos abound.

Sunflower. So named for the colors. The colors were chosen to represent the feeling of the sun on my face, another meditation technique.

My fav is the Sunflower pic. Love the warm tones and can almost feel the warmth of the sun radiating off your face.
