So, for now I am working on dolls(the same ones still!) and taking more self portrait photographs. I still feel the need to tell a story and keep being inspired by the Pre-Raphaelites and recently by Botticelli's "Primavera"
Sometimes, I feel really stupid taking these photos of myself, but I can tell when I am ready to take more when I start to go back and edit one set over and over again. I get all antsy for new photographs and I never know when that will strike so it is just easier if I take them of myself-especially since recently my old enemy insomnia has come back to visit me. Anyway, finally have to set up everything, figure out a scene and costumes and just do it.
They are by no means masterpieces but they are something to me-Something I feel I must keep doing(Probably something people would like to see less of but what can you do).
The ones above were inspired by a gorgeous bouquet of green and white flowers that I made into a headpiece. This was good because the flowers were on their way out so I had to make myself get going and do the photos.
You have seen one from this set before when I did my Divine Diptych of an "Allegorical Painting" and chose Botticelli's "Primavera. I went on to take a few more(It took me forever to get this outfit together and all that so why not?).
A lot of silly stuff went into getting these photographs together, but I'm not telling! I finally finished a new set that I will share later. And, I am really excited about 2 new vintage dresses I found for super cheap prices that will work for so many ideas. I also have a grand project I am working with 2 amazing models. I will give you one hint: it involves lots of white feathers!
