|"Peices of the Past" mixed media piece|
i've been wanting to put together a piece with actual photos of some of my ancestors, so here it is. the guy is my great-grandfather moss, born in the netherlands and emigrated in the late 1800's. the women are his daughters. the middle one on top was the youngest and my grandmother. you can't tell here, but she had red hair and was by all accounts, somewhat spoiled. many of the sisters (there were also a couple boys not pictured) died at fairly young ages, but both my grandma and her dad lived into their 80's. my mom remembered him fondly and speaks about him in her book.
this piece was created in response to the next retreat theme "nourishment".
lots of layers and hidden treasures in there!
3 new bookmarks this week.
and some other recent ones.
and last, but not least, i made this little (easy) "pear flip-flop" (the pears start on the top and end on the bottom!) way exceeded my expectations.... total yumminess!!
yes, i have been busy!
