A modified and photographed picture

I'm so pretty she hissed

This attempt at 'art' was my therapeutic way of expressing the darkness within me after divorce, illness and depression. I had been, before all of the above, to life drawing workshops, and thus had a collection of wonderful oil pastels. As my dog and I mumbled and growled about IT ALL, I took to this picture, bought at an op-shop, of a sweet young girl, contemplating the landscape on a dewy morn. An angel of revenge is what I made of that maiden, and here she is. Oil pastels changed the entire picture, then photographed and brightened.

I bought a very old framed print of a lovely maiden sitting and admiring the landscape, as you do if you are of the Romantic kind. However, I was divorced, on my own with my dog, very very ill and depressed. I took to the maiden with oil pastels and changed her into this avenging angel. I then took a photo of it and have intensified the colour a little.
