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 [:
The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
