My mother has been my muse for much of my life. Our relationship was tumultuous as she battled with alcoholism since before I was born, and decades after. However, she was also beautiful, gentle, fragile, hysterical, intelligent, and incredibly creative. The image fragment on top of this collage is from an old photo and shows her torso and a bit of her arm as she was chatting on the telephone (1970's). The bottom portion of this collage is from a Polaroid I took of some items in my old apartment (2002), one of them being a green frog Tiffany lamp that my mother gave me, which I cherished and still have.
