Jan/Feb issue of Somerset Studio Magazine


It's a great treat to be published in a Stampington Magazine. Two pieces were published in Somerset Studio's Jan/Feb 2009 black and white challenge section. This clown came from a very old Japanese photo (below). I love his round WWII era glasses. The photo came from an old album that John brought back from Sydney on his last trip to Australia.


I made this color collage of the clown before the black and white one.


The house collage uses one of favorite images from an old CDV. (original is below)

These two girls must have been sisters. Their eyes are wonderful. You may remember their eyes from my old blog banner:

The sisters were also used in the mixed media piece "Cocoon" that was exhibited at Glenview Mansion show. Their gaze is so direct. It would have been a treat to know them.
