Avoidance.


People who get to deal with chronic trauma, extreme stress, all that, know the consequences of falling into complete meltdown. Sometimes, too many, that’s unavoidable, but other times, it can be staved off, at least. I’m hyper-alert, hyper-vigilant, all the hyper, and it’s making it very hard for me to breathe. So, distraction. A glass dish, water, oil, black desk, and a camera. Meltdown Avoidance, click for full size. These are straight out of the camera, no fiddling. Definitely used a flash.

    Thank you all. :)

    Charly, I was wondering that myself. I don’t have any naturally coloured oils, or food colouring in the house, that must be corrected! I’d love to do this outside, in Summer, with colour all around, and bright sun, to play with reflections. I’d even do that now, if I could stand to be outside for half an hour, but high temps are zero, and I have trouble coping.

    Apologies for late-commenting, but this seemed appropriate. I’ve been in avoidance-mode for a few months, for several reasons. Trying to get back up-to-speed (my OCD won’t let me skip the stuff I missed :-) -- plus I’m always fascinated by the various art posts). Anyway….

    The photos are AMAZING. I think I might like to use one as a desktop wallpaper, with your OK.

    Hope to have more punctual comments soon….

    Jim, absolutely, you can use whatever you like! It’s been hard to get out of avoidance mode, so I know the feeling.

    Thank you!
