my fire in the light

This outfit is for Style Imitating Art.
My blouse is thrifted.

One of my best friends gave me the bracelet cuff.
It's made from a recycled record album.

Here's the art as inspiration.
From the Plains II by Georgia O'Keeffe

I actually think this top I'm wearing in the photo below matches the painting better.
I donated that blouse years ago,
 because I didn't like the fit.
This photo is from Our New Orleans Trip in the Summer of 2009.
Necklace made by my cousin
Can you see the bow in the thread? 
 sleeve details

I actually donated that purse, years ago, too.

My art journal pages from 7-18-12

Should I fall out of love, my fire in the light
To chase a feather in the wind
Within the glow that weaves a cloak of delight
There moves a thread that has no end.

It says: If I had an extra hour a day What would I do with it? Whatever I wanted. Probably create more, sleep more, write more, practice more. I don't know. Yes, I do. I would spend more time with my love.

Collected stamps from old mail

For many hours and days that pass ever soon

the tides have caused the flame to dim

At last the arm is straight, the hand to the loom

Is this to end or just begin?

All of my love, all of my love,
All of my love to you, now

Shadow of me and my love 
in Corpus Christi, July 2012

The cup is raised, the toast is made yet again

 One voice is clear above the din
Proud Arianne, one word, my will to sustainFor me, the cloth once more to spin

My love, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, August 2012

Yours is the cloth, mine is the hand that sews time
his is the force that lies withinOurs is the fire, all the warmth we can findHe is a feather in the wind
My love playing in the ocean, in Florida.

All of my love, all of my love,

All of my love to you, now

I get a little bit lonely,just a little, just a little,

just a little bit lonely...
All of My Love by Led Zeppelin

  17. Love the idea of style imitating art! Fabulous! Also, you have inspired me to do something with some stamps that I have. Funny how we keep things and then forget we have them and then figure out what to do with them :) Use them in art journal, yes!

  21. Rocket, Def Leppard! Good song. (: Oh my goodness, you look sooooooo pretty, especially in that first photo! You have a killer smile. All My Love is another brilliant song. You have SUCH good taste in music.

    May the force be with you.
