Octopus control freak
9 x 9 inches paint and collage on panel
This is speaking to my attempts to control the lives of my children and my father-in-law and my art career and my husband and my.... It's crazy! I have to stop. I think the 30's are a decade of age where women work hard to take care of others and nurture and build a home. We attempt to create a rhythm. In the process they can, like me, become control freaks. It is a loosing battle. As kids grow and friends assert their own will, the rhythm gets torn apart. Now that I am heading to my 50's it is time to let the octopus move on. Time to let go.
