Thanks Patricia for the link and mindful challenge! I watched the superb video of Weingarten's work several times before beginning and kept these thoughts in mind:


A new language of portrait
A translucent composite
Project--Portrait Unbound
Engaging intellectually and emotionally
Combining a deductive medium with an inductive medium
An autobiographical visual experience


I started with the theme--living outside the box--and went from there!

The robins are from a photo of a mixed media collage on canvas I did using vintage paper doll clothes, twigs, etc. The rest of the images are photos I've taken.
