I found a textural background that I had abandoned a while back and decided to work on that.
It is a piece inspired by old walls with posters fading and peeling. I have layered papers, maps, manuscript, paint, crayon and loads of grungepaste.
I chose a very old photo of my paternal Grandparents, probably taken about 1928. my father is top left and his siblings are all there except his twin brother who always lived with his Grandparents which was, in my opinion very sad!
I added some stabile scribble and a bit of printing with a script stamp. mounted the photo onto corrugated card and added part of a Shakespeare sonnet.
I think that the photo looks really at home in this setting and I wrote a secret message on manuscript paper and tucked it into the side of the photo! Still miss my Dad very much...he was my artistic inspiration!
