Hope Is the Thing With Feathers

Collaboration between Isa Rodriguez and F.A. Moore,
combines similar images created by the artists separately, and at different dates, with no knowledge of the other. The likeness was so uncanny, they simply needed to be married in one piece. The separate elements are Bird Comfort by Rodriguez and Rain-I by Moore. Poem by Emily Dickenson.

This work is my variation of the original. Please see F.A. Moore’s original of this collaborative work

“here is my Story with this .. I had not felt it was truly mine until I layered it with another photo of mine, actually it is layered with one of my versions of a fractal I had played with a while back , one I loved especially when my cousin, Iris’, whose husband fell in love with it and sort of helped me name it "Twin Twisters. He had never appreciated art before, but started to a bit, while Iris was learning a few ropes on Rb, and spending time looking at photographs and reading the different writings.

that original is here
*Here are the details of the two images

Bird Comfort

Rain I

The way I see this :

  1. at the beginning of life, we are divinely cute, potentially everything, love to be seen and hear, clear as a bell, but sometimes dumber than dirt. albeit . sooooo good looking ..we are innocent, we are absorbing, we also love to be heard, and like to experiment and make some big booboos.. profound color, emotions galore, puberty … hot , cold , where do we go , hurt, pain, its bigger than everything .. , everything is important we think, what we say is important , what we are doing is oh so good isnt it ??
  1. then we enter the error of a bit of doubts, and responsibilities, but we do have a style.. we even twirl our words, to make them sound better, and we can bend the rules, and we are working , and we are lonely sometimes, oh , we are so confused… but sometimes a bit content .. but mostly not, we wear our face well, but we see what is there.. and though we perch quite proudly , we feel something is missing.. .. in the middle of our careers, we are not content , but dont know how to stop the crazy machine we are on
  1. when we approach our later years, years which we are sure wont last too long.. we are fading in our bodies, but our mind .aaaaaaaah, clear as a bell sometimes , more than ever.. we are content in not being seen so much , but , some people know we have some wisdom .. we dont care what people think of us so much anymore.. we ar perched up higher, for we live to observe more. and listen more ..and also we are aware of the grass on the other side. we are ready more and more to go to the real green grass, our final home, and we wonder allot about the days gone by , and we do worry about some things. but we let things happen more, and not feel we must interfere, we know better, things tend to work out in their own way .. we ache for a young body at times, we feel we have even lost some body parts along the way .. what happened to all of our hair .. what happened to all of our skin tones ?. oh but now those wrinkles on our hands. how beautiful they can be…. aaaah , if people only knew .. how much heartache would they not have to endure. but our voice is low.. people must seek our advice. we wont do the speeches so much anymore , hence the text must be low tones, barely visible except up close

lol. you can clearly see what stage I am in with this explanation dont you ?? :))

    Your description of the process of life is just so real; and is a nice companion to the message of Hope and endurance, even in extremity of the little bird.

    Can’t believe our birds just fit right into each other. The middle bird shows the face of my bird behind a translucent image of your bird. Amazing. And our circles, my raindrop and your sun are also nearly identical proportionally. At least in the originals.

    This was fun, Isa. Thanks for the suggestion to “marry the two”. I never would have thought of it.

  • you know i love this .. this sort of binding together we have found here:.. I sure do love how you see this as well, so full of art , so full of real hopwe.. thanks .. this will be a special .. for us both .. and what a title.

    girl ! we got wings with this .. may I say , God bless ya sister.
