rainbow mirror / mirror image


While waiting in traffic, I was putting a CD in the player and noticed my bright, colorful reflection. “If you paint in your mind a picture of bright and happy expectations, you put yourself into a condition conducive to your goal.” - Norman Vincent Peale / i'm so glad that i'm liking the outcome of this project, it was truly daunting at first. our teacher told me the assignment was "meant to be confusing" and that i wasn't supposed to "know what to do." the first part of the piece is the one with the red figures. since he is a film nut, we were supposed to block out a scene with construction paper that showed three figures. since i thought this was the final stage, i made mine more elaborate than many of the other people and loved it when i turned it in. the next part is a mirror image of the first with inverted colors (which i used photoshop to discover). it has been really hard to mix the colors because they were so neon, but i'm doing the best i can! i have a little further to go, but i'm excited about the finished product [:

I love the cd reflection. I need to make my son do this with me when he leaves. I am not holding my breath on that one.

What a neat concept for a blog :) .... way better than facebook pages in my opinion ....
