A couple of years ago, I assisted Linda Novick when she taught a program at Kripalu called Unmasking Your Soul. The mixed media piece I created in memory of my mother, shown here, was done at the end of that program. I had brought xeroxes of several family pictures with me in hopes that I would use them in some artwork. This particular photograph of my mother is one of my favorites. She's a young woman, recently graduated from high school, and probably working at her first job. That string of pearls is so elegant. The way she crosses her arms and smiles is very self-assured. I wanted to surround that picture with things that my mother loved: the beach, butterflies, flowers, and the color purple.
See my blog post where I talk about some of the memories behind this artwork: http://www.askdesign.biz/blog/2016/03/louise-boston-1944-in-memory-of-my-mother/
