Digital Collage - Life in Black & White


One of the Yahoo groups - Altered Designs - them this week is circles. I like circles and thought I would see what I could come up with. So I spent the early morning working on several digital pieces. Circle is the underlying theme.

This collage felt like it should be in black and white. When I first saw her I thought she has that look in her eyes that says "trapped." Of course she is trying to make the most of life - under someone else's terms. That is all I am going to say about that....

You captured her look perfectly, it all reminds me of a book I read years ago called "Alias Grace" by Margaret Atwood, about a woman in prison, it was probably in the same era as this lady is going by her clothing.
It just caught my eye :)
