Illustration Friday ~ 100%



It is not always easy to trust in someone 100%...for me it means letting go of control and believing without doubt, and that can be hard. It is even harder when trust has been broken and you need to learn how to believe again. The human condition is so fragile and can be so flawed and yet if we do not trust in each other, then what do we have ?

you're right - you do need 100% if you trust. Great post.

This is beautiful! Yes, without trust we live in constant fear and that's such a terrible waste.

And it's so wonderful to meet someone that helps you trust again!
Wonderful illustration and heart felt post.

Love the reds that sneaked in there. Your beautiful words remind me of a text of Noah Grey: http://noahgrey.com/vault/photolog/view.php?p=1051

Wonderful collage and very profound statement. It's such a dichotomy, fearing (with good reason) trust but needing it to have a fulfilled life!

Very thoughtful and poignant. You, you, you're good!

One hundred percent perfect! This is gorgeous. I love the subject the composition and the color. I especially like the transparencies you were able to create and the soften, tapered and darkened edges. Everything works so well in this piece and your thoughts that go with this beautiful work echo my own.

It's hard when someone has ruined trust for us. But if we let them win, then we continue to let them have power over us. Excellent collage and post!

enigma said...

i think i can trust some people 100% and certain people don't. always listen to your heart. great post, nancy.

Ellen Byrne said...

Food for thought - and then there are those who "trust" but verify. I think it's better to trust with an open heart.

Very nice collage!

Bonjour Nancy! Your collages are beautiful! Just found your blog through Lindsay's and had never visited before. I like the depth of your collages as well as the tones and blends of colors and papers. I will be visiting more often! When you have a minute, please come and visit mypinkturtle, I would be delighted! Take care, LuLu
