Shirley Boudreux ~ "Holding On By A Thread" (2012) 5 1/2 feet high x 2 feet round image via surfacedesign.org "The works depict a portrait of someone’s life that exists in an eternal state of transformation. It is in this uncertain state in which we, as human beings, live out our daily lives. This is where your life is falling apart, fragmenting into a thousand pieces." ~ artist via http://shirleyaboudreaux.wix.com/shirleyaboudreaux
