Larger than Life?

Monday, January 07, 2008

This is a self portrait I’ve been working on. I’m calling it, ‘The Right Side of Darkness’. I’ve had cancer twice in my life, and a friend recently pointed out to me that both cancers as well as the organs I’ve had removed as a result of my cancer treatments are all on the right side of my body. How strange that I never put that together! As soon as she said it I knew I wanted to do a self portrait based on that idea.
One of the hardest part was trying to figure out what size I should be. Am I larger than life like the middle print? Hmmm...I don’t think so. So I settled on the size on the right. It seemed like a perfect fit.

I used fusing to piece this quilt. I have yet to quilt it. Stay tuned for the completed piece.
