Don’t you just love this mixed media portrait? I love how you can completely change the atmosphere of a photo by adding an illustration and different colours. I like the mixture of real and fantasy. Our very existence is real and phantasmagorical at the same time. We all life and breathe and walk this earth while our heads and hearts are filled with imaginary things, hopes, dreams and nightmares. My ex-boyfriend once asked me why I believed there was something more then just this life. I said I couldn’t believe our thoughts, our inner feelings, our unspoken words and everything we keep inside would just be biology. I still don’t believe that. This beautiful work is by the talented Australian Laura McKellar. I love the bird crown this sixties woman is wearing. I would love to wear a bird all day! You can buy Laura’s work online in her shop.
