"On Their Way"

This is a "work in progress" from an online class that I am taking from Karyn Gartel. The name of the class is "A Colorful Past Summer School". The picture that I am using is of my mother and her brother a few years ago (mom is driving). Mom will be 89 years old on Sept. 26. I have quite a few old family photos and thought it would be fun to use prints of them in some of my art work. I'll finish the collage in the next few days and post it up.

Looks like a great class, Jacq. Is this a mixed media painting? Do you have fiber in this too?

Hi!
Today I'm creating labels for the ATCs in the upcoming CYBER FYBER exhibition but I can't resist sneaking a peek into some of the blogs while I work. I'm so glad I looked in on your wonderful blog. I adore your collage. You're so lucky to have such beautiful, vintage photos of family members. Love the dying too. Alaska is great and your pictures are wonderful. Thanks for sharing and especially for trading with me!
