(in English: Why you, why me, why us...)
This one is very personal. The right portion is from Edward Munch painting called "The scream". Everything else is of my own creation(on the left, it is me..). It is actually about one of my son and myself. We were both born in January. Unfortunately, he has to live with paranoïd schizophrenia and I try to be an ally to him. So, this is us.
The title is: I'm a frog, you're a frog, kiss me!
Of course, February is about love... The story behind the title is: In Canada, we have two official languages: English and French. French speaking people are mostly concentrated in the Quebec province. I will not go in historical details, but lets say that there has been a long history of tension between Quebec and the rest of Canada. So, the English people call us, the french-canadians, "frogs". A Quebec artist called "Robert Charlebois" wrote a song called "I'm a frog, you're a frog, kiss me". I think frogs are cool and when I saw this picture, I thought of this song and how much me and my husband love each other.
I will stop here for this post. My next post will present my March and April pages.
