It's been another cold day here, and we have
been threatened with winter storms over the
next few days - I'm hoping they are wrong!
For Art Journal Journey, Erika's lovely theme of
'tell me a story', I have a hybrid piece using a canvas I made
of some of my ancestors. I placed them here onto a
grungy background. The original was made with various photo transfers, interspersed with scraps of old letters. My great grandparents are both there,my Mum, my grandparents, my great aunt, and I am hidden in the background.
I like having many layers, even though they are not all visible -
life is a palimpsest, one layer covering up and sometimes
erasing the other. People who lived before us are still
'with us'in our memories, they are part of us as we are a
continuation of them:
And this is the tag I made for Tag Tuesday, theme 'silver':
'To speak is silver, silence is golden'
Would be a good tip for some politicians these days....
Some photos taken this week, mornings and
on my walks:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
