Memory Snip

This cut and paste collage is titled:  Memory Snip.  The woman in the old photograph that I altered is
my partner's mother.  She died two years ago this fall.  This really is a tribute of sorts to her.  She was hard working and very strong in her beliefs.  My partner and I have been together for over 36 years  and the first few years were hard.  His parents did not speak to him for 3 years.  Then slowly they came around and both his mother and father loved me.  This one is for you Marie.


  1. This is an amazingly beautiful tribute piece. The composition is especially well thought out with the placement of each item perfectly situated. Even if I did not know it was a tribute I am captivated by the narration of the piece. WOW!

  2. This IS a striking piece. I think it's the colors that do it for me.

  3. Thanks for your comments John and Brian.
