Artwork - ALL > Assemblage & Mixed Media

This mixed media piece contains my first photograph taken at age 5 of a flooded yard. Layers of images represent the "layers of years" since that time--an acrylic painting of the image, the paper frame to "hold it" (stop time), and graphite drawing of Lilacs (that grew just outside the door, outside the field of vision in the photograph; and whose smell jas accompanied that memory throughout my life.)
