Pix by Carla

Carla, a friend from my tai chi class, took these photos. She and her partner, Dave, do portrait photography when they aren’t doing other things such as office work or music. I needed some photos for promotional use, didn’t have any recent good ones. Now I do!

About a year ago March, I decided to stop coloring my hair (brown). For about four months, I used semi-permanent color, then nothing. There was never a sharp line where the color changed. The brown just faded away.  It turned white in the front and multicolored in the back.  I’m still surprised how many compliments I get every day and also, how much I like it.

I heard a story a couple of days ago about a woman who had ben coloring her hair since she was about twelve. After a while, she didn’t know what color her hair actually was. At twenty-eight, she decided to stop the color; it was just too much work. She too, was surprised by all the compliments to her natural hair. Maybe nature does know best.

About leyaevelyn

About thirty years ago, I moved from New York City to rural Nova Scotia. For an artist, it is a good place to live. Spacious and quiet. Despite the beautiful scenery and frequently grey skies, my abstract paintings focus on color, its expressive qualities and how it creates form and space.
