a plea, remember me

The technique I use is called stippling, which creates the image by using varying amounts of little tiny dots. By using more or less dots, or placing them closer together or farther apart, I make the illusion of the image. The feathers in the headdress are made with dashes to create a different texture. For ArtPrize 2014 I have brought Zelda Boden back into the spotlight. She was one of the main performers in the Barnum and Bailey circus in the early 1900s. Frederick W. Glasier as the talented photographer that captured her image that I referred to for this piece. Almost everything about their lives has been forgotten. Some people fear being forgotten, they create grandiose legacies, or build monumental displays as a tribute to themselves. But fear breeds nothing good. To be truly remembered is to love and be loved. We need to stop focusing on ourselves and reach out to others with love, mercy and grace. This is how miracles happen. How would you like to to be remembered?
