Spread #35- Fall into Step January 15, 2009Posted by Orly in Spreads.
You probably have noticed it before…my art is inspired by the smallest of ‘things’…a word, an old photograph, a single memory, a cracking wall, a paint chip, a food dish, a sentiment, a sense, a thought, even a cabbage.. However, this art is inspired by the grandest of them all..my stepmother. Why grand you may ask. To whatever I am going to say now add the phrase ‘the most’. For example: She taught me…the most. ‘Most’ here means more than anybody that is not my child. So here it goes…She taught me…,cared for me…, sang for me…, inspired me…, encouraged me…, understood me…., listened most attentively and most patiently to my words and my silence, my heart, my soul, my pain, my joy, my failures, my triumphs, my rhythm. I dedicate this artwork to her on this special day that is her birthday.
