Monochromatic/Things Change



When do we make the change from girl to woman? I'm still asking myself this question...

It's a great question. There are times I am playing with my daughter that I stop and feel that this is not right - how am I the mommy? The grown up? The responsible one? Ahhh - time. the thief of girlhood - if we let it be! Love your art here - it's gorgeous!

This is a good question!
I think we never do the "big" change,- I`m changing back and forth depending on ex. my mood. We are girls and women at the same time. (Not so easy to write in english)When I was 20 years, I sure believed I was grown up. Now I`m 48(?!) and now I know I`ll never will be an adult. What is it to be an adult?

I believe it goes and comes, sometimes we are a woman at a young age, and sometimes we are a girl when we are older. Does it have to be one way or the other.
I am 48 now, and I like to be a girl. But when i was 18 I wanted to be referrred to as a woman.

Isn't that true. I was so musch older when I was 20 than now at 48.

I think girls are women and women are girls...we have that woman instinct in us from the start, but somehow always have a small girl within. I have a grown up son, but sometimes I feel like a child! This piece is lovely! I adore butterflies, and the firstthing I thought of was Thumbelina on her lilypad getting a tow from the butterfly to get down the river. Beautiful work:>
