Picture # 31: Ancestral Reunion

FIRST I MUST EXPLAIN MY ABSENCE AND WHY I AM USING THE CAPS...I FELL TWO WEEKS AGO AND BROKE MY LEFT ARM AND INJURED MY SHOULDER - SO - CAN TYPE ONLY WITH RIGHT HAND,
I HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING THE BLOG OF MYRNA WALKNOV WHO IS A CREATIVE GENIOUS AND TEACHER.  THIS IS MY INTERPRETATION OF HER PROJECT CALLED ''CLAN 13"...I HAND STAMPED TORN PIECES OF TISSUE PAPER WITH ARYLIC PAINT, COLLAGED IT ON TO 140 LB. WATERCOLOR PAPER, DREW AND PAINTED MY FACES ON IT AND THEN FILLED IN AND CONNECTED IMAGES.  THERE IS A LOT WRONG WITH THIS, BUT THINK I LEARNED MUCH WORKING THROUGH THIS PROCESS - EVEN IF IT WAS ONE-HANDED!

Oh, Barb, I am so sorry to hear about your injury. I wish I lived close to you so I could bring you some homemade chicken soup and company.

Very nice work on the collage,

xoxo

I see nothing wrong with this, dear Barb. I think it is very lovely and does indeed bring to mind Myrna's work. And you did this one handed? I can't work half as well with two hands. I am so sorry that this has been a rough start to 2012 for you. I hope you are back to your self before long. Please do take care!
