Thirty Days of Truths, Day 11

Something people seem to compliment you the most on ....

This much I know, it's not my warm personality or my fine use of the English language that gets the compliments. At least not those certain words I like to use regularly. I find this sad because I'm proud to be a smart ass and I work hard at it.

Physically I would have to say I'm most complimented on my hair which totally baffles me because I have a love hate relationship with it. I have never in my life had short hair but I always have had days where I just want it was all gone. Depending on my mood I either let it go wild or I spend an hour straightening it only to have it explode a few hours later. If I'm in a hurry in the morning, which I usually seem to be, I just pull it all back and let it hang there giving me that tall dark scary dyke look. But yes people seem to love my hair.

But of anything I get complemented the most on my art. Sometimes I have a hard time with that because it is something I don't like to talk about much. That sounds totally weird for an artist but than I am a totally weird artist so it works.

My art is as much an enigma as I am. My photography is mostly b&w because I love working with the shading and contrast. To me it's just so much more fun than working with color. But when I paint I love to mix my own, as if the thirty shades of blue I can buy aren't enough. I hate abstract photography but I paint in abstract. This summer I saw and fell in love with something I had rarely, if ever, seen before. Stark b&w abstract paintings. So you see even the artsie part of my brain is a bit rebellious.

It is what it is.
