Let's get creepy!
Craiyon uses artificial intelligence to generate images from text prompts. You can type anything in that you'd like and see what Craiyon comes up with. I stumbled across it a couple months ago and love throwing random ideas at it to see what Craiyon spits out.
One day while trying to decide what to ask Craiyon what to make, I thought: why not use my queens as subject matter?
I have a soft spot for shameless eccentrics.
These 3 are all angels in heaven now but they still live rent-free in my mind. Each one of these unique ladies brought their own flavor to the world. Something I try to embrace within myself each day. So, let's get to it and make some weird stuff with them.
I love hearing elderly people talk about their lives.
Especially, from this time period. These people were born in the late 1800s. So much changed during their lifetimes. I can't even fathom it. It makes me think of my great-great-grandma. She was born in 1888. I met her once. I was a young child but I still remember visiting her. She passed about 5 years later at 104 years old. How amazing would it be to have recordings of her talking about her life. It's crazy how much is lost when someone passes away.
Anyway, their lives seem so much nicer than life now. Everything seemed more calm, more free. Obviously, the starvation and poverty is heartbreaking. But, not needing a driver's license, the lack of regulations, rules, and people, just seems so nice.
