Spread 209 – Dark

12-13 December 2015

Vintage and personal items and images, matte medium, Nova Color paint, black ink.

From an early age I have always seen the brighter side of any situation. I have long developed survival skills enabling me to adapt to a adversity. Perhaps it is my ability to analyze people and situations from several angles at a moments notice. It takes skill to look deeper at a relationship, event or picture.

Lately I have come to realize I am the anchor in a very turbulent storm. Amazingly, looking back it would seem it has become my vocation all along in this life. It is a weary, exhausting job. Who do I lean on? I am tired. Perhaps I never will be able to.

This spread is from a recent class with Orly Avineri.
