Weekly Photo Challenge … Self-expression

January 27, 2015

I do not express myself easily.  I am very self-conscious; also I came from a generation who were not encouraged to ‘boast’. Blowing your own trumpet was not considered attractive.  I am in awe of those who can make their mark without shame and regret.  So, with this difficult start, it was easy for me to remain hidden behind the facade of society; the well behaved daughter, wife, mother and even employee;  not pushing out to many boats.

I did get a degree and even changed my career, as the children got older but I was not able  shake of those early  put downs of mother, teachers, now ex-husband,  even a missing father was a rejection  … etc.  

Then; came the the opportunity to blog and I came out from my shell;  almost, with an pseudonym so there is still a degree of fear.  

When I began painting and particularly printmaking  again after 50 years I was able to express myself more fully with colour and shape.  However, it is not without discomfort and hard work
