This is a great piece I saw on Flickr. This artist has some wonderful Beatles colleges I will probably blog about them in the near future. This one hit me hard because of my issues of loneliness. To think that somebody so loved by the public was so alone. I have been trying to figure out how to create a piece that would show feelings of loneliness & this one captures that emotion perfectly. Funny thing is that MM does not sad or in despair in this picture, & the information states it was one of her last soots. I think her pain is hidden deep in her eyes. Like John Lennon , deep in the soul, slipping out when they thought no one was looking that little child came peeking out. There are several songs I refer to as my theme songs due to the topic of loneliness & this line from the song "Candle in the Wind" has been one that hits deep in the heart. What a lovely tribute to a talented & sad person. You will never be alone again MM.
I am a transplanted NY'er (state, not city) living on the small part of NH that touches the ocean. I'm an occupational therapist by day & a self taught artist by night. As an artist I am just discovering & accepting some of my talents. I have a very sarcastic & dry sense of humor... & believe in all things magical. I was once told, "You will always remain beautiful if you smile," so I make sure I am most of the time.

I draw inspiration from all things spiritual &/or magical including: eastern philosophies & religions, nature & life in NH (especially the ocean), the Universe, ancient civilizations (Egypt), anatomy, magical beings (fairies, mermaids), The Beatles, "The Lion King," mantras & personal affirmations & above all else... LOVE.
