I keep my secrets
but it is time
for full disclosure

A continuation of the theme from my last post, this image was created to stress the fact that it's very important to talk about your feelings when you are going through a crisis.

Find someone, anyone who is willing to listen.

They won't solve your problems, but it is important for your well being to release some stress. Talking will help do that.

Just for the curious...I created this image by combining two photographs. The first photograph was taken out my backdoor. We have a lot of crows in our neighbourhood, which bothered me when we first moved to our town lot, but now I quite enjoy crow watching. The second image is a photograph of an ice covered puddle and I have used that as my sky. The "real" sky was a totally grey overcast day. I oversaturated the colours of the ice and I love the final outcome.

Disclosure is from my solo Roots+Wings exhibit held at the Margaret Hennigar Public Library in February 2018. Each image was paired with verse to represent emotions ranging from devastation through rejuvenation.

I believe trees represent growth and strength, with roots to ground us in our traditions. I see birds in flight as symbols of freedom, with the power of dreams and life renewed. Together, Roots + Wings create powerful images of inspiration and tools to heal the soul. These images are a symbolic representation of emotional healing, from devastation through rejuvenation.
