    Staged..(could be posted in that group…I bet)
    Someone is acting…playing…
    little silouhettes dancing a mantra loving children song.
    Protecting…..preserving…creating a living home.
    No one should escape from the circle.
    And the living Body-soul, the recipients of our own individualy are doing climbing up and down a rope..our core, our central spinal chord, as if they were “chakras” moving and looking for their right place to energize our Being.
    Result. Even … may be … your centers of Light and Energy move… displace…change….have up and downs….the central core is strong and let them do it.
    And you protect and chorus your Soul-Home with consciousness and intelligence.So the dance keeps on going.
    Rosa ( I had stepped on this once…not knew what to say I felt it better. I love it very much. It is really symbolic and strong. Thanks for your kind presence in my Helplessly Hoping “soul”)

  • Rosa This drawing came from two works I did, a painting and a drawing that both were sold, I combined the images and made it one, I’m always reinventing myself I guess. Thanks for the marvelous commentary.

    Love it, very intriguing. I like how the paper dolls aren’t the usual saccharine thing but are kind of ominous.

    I love the shadow cast from the spotlight on the “show”, and the idea that it starts from up higher than our field of vision, and that it’s so strangely surrealistic and fanciful, at the same time.
