Hurt Box Bitch

Sketchbook Project Page
I used a photo of my found art piece titled "hurt box"
because this woman was like a walking hurt box.
She just couldn't be friends with other women even though she craved it.
Before long the jealously would set it, the attempts to manipulate, the spite.
Inevitably she would lose her friend
and
the wooing of new one's would set in

WOO HOO!!!!!!!!

I am not one of those people that win's much, so to win this beautiful Ceramic Bowl from Painter Girl from her blog giveaway was a wonderful surprise. Actually seeing it and touching it I was even more delighted (check out the bottom of the bowl). If you haven't seen her work already, please check it out, it is original and beautifully done.
Thank You
Painter Girl
You Rock

Perhaps this woman needed to be a friend to herself first! Neat idea for art!

Love the bowl! Lucky you!

Man, you hit the nail on the head because she really didn't like herself much. Maybe that is why she had so many affairs and broke so many hearts, and dressed FOR attention.

Jaf,
That page is awesome! Are you painting right on the sketchbook page or making separate pages, then gluing them in?
The text with that page reminds me of my "Lost Souls" stories. Very cool. You are doing such a great job on these pages. Love em!

Cool bowl too!! :-)

Sheree, this is actually a photograph of my own work that I glued onto the page and then I cut a hole through the page and you will see more about her on the other side of the page. So some of the pages I have painted directly on, the eye was painted on canvas and glued in.

I really love the bowl, you lucky jafabrit! But I like the whole concept of the Hurt Box even more. You have a creatively twisted mind and I envy that deeply. :)

What? Whaaat? I am so out of the loop...I have been so swamped with stuff that I don't get to do my usual jog around my blog friends...and I completely missed the give-away at Painter Girl's blog---damn!!! I would have faught you for that bowl---it's beautiful...everything of her just screams--"touch me". I love that!!!

Plus- Corrine, your work in this post is incredible too---I believe I hear it screaming touch me just as well!!

Peace & Love.

Oh, I am so jealous that you won this bowl! But I am hoping to have Painter Girl all to myself one day in March, so there! :P

Jafabrit, I love how you can translate an emotion or experience into art. You're amazing!

This story reminds me of the disfunctional painter in New York Stories - cyclical behavior.

hello.. thanks for your nice comment... ya know these blogs, it was hard to figure out how to leave a comment.. then at the bottom I noticed *comments*

this is honestly the first blog I've ever commented on but maybe you could change that to *leave a comment* so bone heads like me will easily see it.

because I would have just not left a comment if I didn't want to take the time to find the button...

anyway this piece of art is interesting.. I actually dont think I've really ever seen anything like it.. and I'm pretty sure it scares me :)

ah yes the wc - I seem to be good at creating hard feelings on that board.. oh yes. but look for my posts on the structured critique forum.

wow, then I am honored James. Oh I will checkout your posts on the structured critique at wc.
As for the comment buttons, I have no control over their placement and each blog platform has a different place for them. I am forever trying to find it on wordpress. Either way they can be annoying to find and sometimes to post (spam filters etc). So thanks for taking the time.
