I’m not intending
to be sacrilegious with
this family portrait.

    • Sometimes when I make images, a phrase or word or song lyric jumps into my head and is forever attached to the image. Sometimes the connection is vague and sometimes it makes sense. Anyway, “family portrait” is what I thought as I was making this shot.

  1. It is a pleasure to learn more about your creative process, Melinda! I love the way you implemented the chiaroscuro technique in this photograph, thus creating an accentuated hierarchy between the ”family members”!👏

    P.S. Ironically, when I’m writing poetry, my thought process is precisely like yours, only reversed: initially, I have the words, and then a corresponding artwork or a photograph comes into my mind! Similar to you, I’ve dedicated my blog to a powerful combination of visual and literary arts. ☺️

    Seeing your blog was like finding a hidden gem!💎

    • I am so glad that you found my blog – it’s always a bit of a mystery as to how people find it! The blog started when my friend Laurie committed to writing one haiku comment/day for a year on my main blog (http://melindagreenharvey.com); about three months in, I decided that her lovely verses were getting lost so I started this blog to showcase her words. At the end of her year, I took a deep breath and decided to try to continue what she’d so brilliantly started. I wasn’t sure if I could do it, but I’ve written ~2,300 all by myself…

      I’ve just started following your blog and your instagram, and look forward to seeing more of your work.

      Thanks again for your comments on this blog, and I hope you’ll continue to visit and comment!
