"I've been pondering lately all of the ways we distance ourselves from others. Usually it is more subtle than depicted in my painting, but I loved the image of such a bold rebuff that is nevertheless oddly fascinating for the man while still quite ambivalent for the woman. "If you can tolerate the stink, then maybe I'll give you a glance".
Dating can be so Daunting. How many frogs must I kiss before the time is up? Poor Girl--all dressed up and ready to go. Life is certainly a mystery.
In Trina Paulus's book "Hope for the Flowers" one of the main characters, a caterpillar named Yellow, finds another caterpillar spinning its silken cocoon and beginning the journey to become a butterfly. Yellow, knowing there is something more, but full of fear, asks how she becomes a butterfly.

It was magical seeing this creation come to life last week. She started out blue, like a giant libido pill, and transformed into this vibrant green piece of arm candy. The crowning touch in objectifying her was the bar code as piece title.
What does it say to you?
It's hard to believe I've been working with Darlene for three weeks. Her art is amazing and she is prolific. It's been exciting to see what she's created this week. I can't wait to share it with you all!
Just wanted to say "bye"....I've been Darlene's assistant for many years and have been posting on this blog for awhile. I am handing the task over to her new assistant, Nora as I become a full time high school math teacher. I can't wait to see how Nora will build on this infrastructure and increase the fans of Unconscious On Canvas. I will miss Darlene and this job a lot! :-( She's an amazing artist, fantastic psychologist, and wonderful friend....
