I have been working on quilts again - for those who have followed my blog, or looked at the older posts, you will see that this blog originated with my exploring the use of MS Paint and that I sampled then the images of a struggling Broadway actress/dancer who I had met three or more years ago. It was an artistic relationship. We met a few times to discuss posing and for plans to do a show, and to show her the sampled her photographs and painted on C prints. Less than a year later we parted ways since she moved to California.
The original plan was to do a show that combined sampling and painting on her her and then creating another set where we worked together creating the images which I would then quilt and paint. In the end I am thankful for the experience since the plan and process pushed me to start creating art after a long absence.
Recently I got permission to use the images of another blogger, but I have just determined she is under aged. I had previously believed she was in college based on content of her blog and appearance. I will not use her images again and have removed others, such as the prior post.
The candids BB photos in this blog have confronted for me issues of privacy. I seldom have photographed children. The few underage candids that I have taken, I will not post. I do think children deserve a heightened degree of privacy.
Nothing here is meant to be improper or seedy.
The image today is sampled without permission from a fashion blog and features a Halloween costume. The subject is in college and sings in a rock band and also models vintage clothes in Tennessee. Her blog is artistic, her fashion is creative and it definitively has a Sixties sensibility. I will link sometime if I get approval.
I think I will ask for permission to use her images.
Last day of a four day weekend. My best.
