|"Berta, Dora & Frieda," Vintage Photo w/Encaustic (necklace)|
I've always loved this extremely small photo of my mother
(center and about 17 y.o.) with her two sisters on either side.
It's very enlarged above. I cut the picture further down to a small postage
size and glued it to a permanent wood panel. Sealed it with beeswax
and specked it with some color. My aunt Betsy on the left passed
away this August, so this is a way to keep her, my mom and aunt
Frieda close to my heart.... Also, this picture was taken by the
lake where I grew up in Senden, Germany. It's where I learned how to
swim and ice skate... it's also the first landscape I fell in love with.
