SoulCollage: Maiden, Mother, Crone

I've been away from my camera for awhile, but still working on creative projects. Lately I've been doing SoulCollage® - a process that reminds me a lot of dreamwork. SoulCollage® involves choosing images that you're drawn to - positively or negatively - in magazines, photos or books, cutting and pasting, and creating a scene with them. It can be something fun or humorous, something provocative, something that probes the depths of your psyche or some other therapeutic work you might be doing. I've been working on a number of processes - the Twelve Steps, the seven chakras, archetypes - and what I end up with is something like a Tarot deck that I can continue to work with. The collages are done on 5X8 inch cards, so the scenes are fairly small.

This group is from a workshop I took last month from Diane Jacobson Born - the Triptych, or Maiden, Mother, Crone (the original Trinity). For three consecutive Wednesday evenings, we explored the meaning of each of these aspects of ourselves, created collages and then shared our work and our thoughts with each other. Here's what I came up with (you can click on the images for a larger view):
