From Character Defect Series.
I am in a 12 step program, in which I explore my faults and character defects: the sins that I struggle with on a regular basis. In this program I have been forced to face myself as I am, and not to place the blame of my actions on those around me. Blending in is another one of my coping mechanisms and character defects. I believe that being able to compromise and blend in among a group can be a positive and cooperative way to work together as a whole, but I took it much farther than this. I became someone I was not, would pretend and change my opinions to match those I was around so that they had no reason to reject or hate me. I lived in fear of rejection, so blending in and becoming who I was with was my way of avoiding it.
I chose a chameleon to represent this for obvious reasons. A chameleon is a master at camouflage and blending in with its environment. He is natures shapeshifter. I placed my colorful chameleon in a background of pattern and color matching its skin so that the viewer would have a sense of it blending into its surroundings.
