I am approaching a major birthday this year and wanted to portray who I am, but I have done so many things that it is impossible to “collage” a lifetime. So, this is where I am now. All my children, grandchildren, cats, job and hobbies are shown. The split in the “hairdo” has two meanings: one is my hair before and after chemo, the second is the fact that I use both sides of my brain – every day! The only thing not noted is that I would not be who I was today if it hadn’t been for my late husband’s guidance toward the real and the practical.
The techniques used, which are not necessarily my favorite, are portrait painting on fabric and photo imagery. First attempt and definitely need more practice.
