An Evolving Life. MeToo2.

MeToo2

Here’s the second in my MeToo series. Right away I noticed how much bolder and brighter it is than the first; how much more confident, and somehow lighter at the same time.

After releasing an idea even a thought—let alone a revelation—into the universe, it lightens, seems to become more receptive. Or perhaps it’s us that lightens too....

Notice in this piece how one figure holds up two, again a composition that revealed itself spontaneously. I realized this after creating it—a testament to the ripple effect when just one of us finds a voice that can resonate for all...

Many thanks to all the friends, old and new, who contacted me after the first MeToo to share their own stories or just to support mine. It validated the connection I sensed and snatched from the atmosphere, making it sweeter, more real and more rewarding than I imagined...

Editor's Note

I have had the good fortune of knowing Meryl Spiegel for many years.  We met during my BNB days when she was referred to me as a resource for a specific type of photography I was searching for.  I also knew her as a writer.  Over the years, I have been impressed with Meryl’s talent and creativity, and the honesty of her work.  When Meryl began to sketch, paint, work with pastels, she truly overlaid one talent on top of another. The layers were intriguing. I reached out to Meryl recently because I thought that the Hummingbird audience would appreciate her work, and value her process.  They say that timing is everything, and in this case it was, because Meryl was thinking about not only “showing” her work, but writing about it too.  In our new series, An Evolving Life, Meryl will share the stages, challenges, and meaning of her art, and the journey that coincides with the pieces she highlights.  Sandra Novick
