Monday's Life Class

So I was imagining aubugine and blood red - that deep deep rich shiny purple and thick dark red. Instead I got purple and pink. Purple and pink! It reminds me of a pair of plastic clogs I had when I was 3 which my parents bought me in Oklahoma City because my cousin had a pair and I really liked them. I'm wearing them in a picture of the pair of us with her uncle who was a Ronald McDonald (before he always wore yellow and red). Its all a bit too barbie & ken and not enough action man.

What I was actually trying to capture was something reminiscent of either Jesus on the cross or those pots from ancient Greece with the althetes on them. But instead I think it just looks screamy queen rather than homoerotic.
