Sketchbook Project: Page 2

Dear Visitor
Thank you for visiting my blog and my sincere apologies.
 Unfortunately due to the continued infringement, mining and exploitation of my images by individuals, spammers and companies I can no longer show my images on this site.
 The images that remain will be partially obscured.

"In fairy tales the wicked
always get punished, but she wasn’t
in a fairy tale. She was in Nana’s kitchen
playing at the sink, playing with the bubbles
and water. She imagined
she was serving tea.
Yes! She imagined

as she lined the glasses
up that some contained the poison
for THEM. Them! Even at five she
knew they were wicked,
only she didn’t really know just
how truly
wicked they would become".
by Corrine Bayraktaroglu

The teeth almost become an audience ala MST3K

I had to look up MST3K jan and I see why you see that. I hadn't thought of the teeth that way, but that is really cool.

Thanks Light and Voices.

Love everything about the image and the poem. I can see so many images from these brief words in my mind and it makes me want to know more!

The five your old is me painter girl and them includes my father who three years after I had played at the sink abused me. The abuse lasted 5 years.

Undaunted said...

I hope you don't mind me asking, but why "them" and not "him"?

I hope you got justice and he was punished.

JafaBrit's Art said...

undaunted, I don't mind you asking at all. Them refers to him and his mother. She was not a nice woman.

Undaunted said...

Thank you for explaining Jafabrit.

San said...

Fabulous pairing of words and image.

Bravo, Cor!

painter girl said...

Oh Corrine,
I had such different images in my mind or I would never have asked you for more. Thank you for being so open about explaining your story. I know it is not easy to put your stories out there.

JafaBrit's Art said...

painter girl, it isn't hard really. I am so far removed from it emotionally after all these years that I have a more objective view. That is why it is not hard to talk about now and again when it comes up in conversation or my art.

JafaBrit's Art said...

that you had magical visions perhaps is a good thing, because the objective was to relate my childhood innocence and my attempt emotionally to cope with nasty people using what was available intellectually (which of course are fairy tales from books).
