I recently did a self portrait called The pieces of me and a poem to go with it.

Lisa saw it and showed me a poem she’d written some time ago, called Jigsaw which was along similar lines and said she’d always wanted a picture to go with the poem. So I told her to send me a picture and I’d have some ‘jigsaw’ fun with it. :-)

This is the first, simpler version, there’s a second version where I’ve added more detail. I couldn’t decide which one I liked better, so I’ve uploaded both. Here is the final version:

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)

    I can’t make up my mind which I like most….

    you are so clever my darling. awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

    xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

  • LOL I can’t make my mind up either. I think they both work in different ways. This one allows space for your face and your expression, the other tells more of a story. :-) xoxo

    Fabulous work my dear!! I can’t pick one either!! LOL

  • Thank you so much Wendi, much appreciated. I like this one because it leaves space for the face to shine and the other because it tells more of a story. Personally, I’d use this one as an avatar and the other as a picture to go with the poem. I am so sorry for the late reply. It’s been a busy week. xoxo
