Old Pictures

I love geneology and creating things using my own family's pictures. So, I thought I would create some art from old pictures. This one is the first in a series. It is one of my mother and her two sisters. My mom is in the middle! I call it "Sisters".

A few years ago my mother gave me a watch pendant that she wore religiously when she was young.  I made an altered book with a niche and the pendant was placed in the niche and the rest of the book was adorned with pictures of her wearing the pendant. She is also wearing the pendant (pin) in this photo.

I think it was taken in Fort Smith, Arkansas in the 40's.  It is oil pastels and color pencil.
