In Jungian psychology, the shadow or “shadow aspect” may refer to (1) an unconscious aspect of the personality which the conscious ego does not identify in itself. Because one tends to reject or remain ignorant of the least desirable aspects of one’s personality, the shadow is largely negative, or (2) the entirety of the unconscious, i.e., everything of which a person is not fully conscious. There are, however, positive aspects which may also remain hidden in one’s shadow (especially in people with low self-esteem). Contrary to a Freudian definition of shadow, therefore, the Jungian shadow can include everything outside the light of consciousness, and may be positive or negative. “Everyone carries a shadow,” Jung wrote, “and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is.” It may be (in part) one’s link to more primitive animal instincts, which are superseded during early childhood by the conscious mind.
Took me some real soul searching to be able to contextualize the part of me I never wanted anyone to see. I really faced that part of me and now I am sharing it with you. I never put much stock in Freud, always felt he was a Fraud but I am biased…I mean even now I can not give you any concrete evidence about his findings so I am not going to talk about it…just remember the man was a bird watcher, who got bored with birds, started watching people and then started making people watch people. Any who, after taking the time to answer the question of, Who am I? I finally came to the question of am I really what my environment or predecessors have determined me to be.
As I yell from all the roof tops I always remember that, “as a man thinkith so he is”. Once this is realized, so is one’s brilliance and so you learn to dig real deep to allow your light to shine beyond the shadows.
This piece sells for $1500.00 in hopes that as it is on your wall you will learn how to look in the mirror and be happy with what you see.
I watch tennis a lot. I love the Wimbledon and seeing who is going to make it this year and how far they will go. Most of the time I pray I have the money to put on a few tickets and try to double. I have learned in life that the “poor gamble to become wealthy and the wealthy can’t afford not to.”
Only when I saw these two I was shocked. They grossed in the triple billions as reported by Sports Illustrated; with the assistance of the Triad Syndicate leading the gambling halls, of course all this hard earned money goes to the Peoples Republic, but it is wonderful that they worked so hard. Since they were seven years old they have been tennis machines and every year they prove their metal.
I really enjoyed being able to recreate them and share them with you all. I hope when you take the time to look into them, they become moments of inspiration and thought as it was for me when I read about them is the magazine. Separately they are worth $15,000.00 but together they are $30,000.00.
Pay to own right now and you can have your own memories of these great players.
I was so happy when I completed this portrait of one of my favorite female fighters.
Now I am not a bandwagon person, as you can tell by most of my posts, I do not cheer for the winning football team during the season, I do not cheer for the winning Olympic country just cause everyone else is. I love having the right to an opinion and being able to voice it. Do I believe it is right for women to fight. eh, can’t say, this one sure can make a statement. Win, lose or draw, she did something most could not and made my heart sing. Made that little boy joy raise in the back of my neck, every time she stepped into the ring I had that hope floats feel and when I read about her I was impressed.
Amelia Earhart is the only other woman to make me feel that way, so the kid inside of me is all a buzz when I think of Ronda Rousey!
This piece I would sell at $75,000.00. All original art work, free hand, and full of the life that it takes to stand in the ring of an Ultimate Fighter Championship!
