Loser's Lament by Margaret Bryant


The first runner-up continues to be bereft and despondant. She has had a few too many.

(starring me, who has never done a pageant nor wanted to)

  • oh and btw— i forgot about the makeup and had it like that (only a portion of the craziness of it really shows, you know how stage makeup is) from like noon until 7 pm. i went outside like that. hanging out the laundry. lol.

    i simply adore all your work! There is a truth…an honesty…a realness. It’s what i am beginning to strive for in my work. That truth and realness makes your work breath-taking to me. It is more beautiful than the most beautiful photo of the prettiest flower. (For me truth usually is, even in all it’s occasional ‘ugliness’.) Thank you for sharing your work here on Red Bubble. I am the better for it.

  • I am so touched by this, I can’t tell you. Thank you, it’s the nicest compliment I have recieved about my work and it means alot to me.
