038 Cirque File by sweetgreychaos 038 Cirque File by sweetgreychaos
Grey called herself a "Now Pretty". She'd never admit it to anyone other than herself- and even then, it only came in the middle of the night when she'd wake up and find herself in front of her mirror, like a trance, studying the shapes in her face. She'd remember what it used to be like. When she didn't have nice things. When the face in the mirror was someone else. So few people were still in her life from back then. So few looked close enough to see the Then, coyly smiling from beneath the Now. So she never had to explain to anyone other than herself- what she had become.

So many things in my life feel like I'm making them up as I go- like if I were to go back and change one thing, everything would be different.

I was cleaning out my computer files, and found this in a file of images I did in 5-10 minutes a piece for a Cirque du Noir charity event I painted for up in Worcester. This was image 38, offered up in a collection of things I could do for the group I was painting quickly. Thus the old design- not rainbow, for the sake of being speedy. I was about to toss it into the depths of file death... when I said... no. There's something here. This one means something. Maybe not a big something.

But it's there.


:bulletblue: Time: Super negligible. Like... one of David Bowie's Labyrinth rants.
:bulletblue: Medium: Halloween cheapo. :heart: An old friend.

Ooh, that sounds like fun! Leopard print's great for the striking effect it gets with minimal effort.
