This is a collage of my mother and her senior prom back in the 30's.
The technique is using copper foiling then soldering the glass. The photo is a transparency and I used stitching around the background. I used a lace material to drape on her beautiful dress she designed and made. My mom was a seamstress and like to draw. She was a member of the First Baptist Church in Bremen, Ga,member of the Eastern Stars where she was past president and a volunteer at Higgens General Hopsital.
This is a reversed painting/photo technique on plexiglass. This is me around 4 yrs of age on my little tricycle. I made a copy of the photo and used gel medium and highlighted with Golden Acrylic paints.
