New Year, New Series


I enjoyed the holidays, while thinking about the new series. It had been forming in my mind for quite some time, but I wanted to finish, "Women Who Changed the World"

The new adventure is "Remembrances" These paintings are inspired by old photos that I saved from family albums and moved to Mexico with me. I don't know who some of the people in the photos are.
There is no one to ask, since my parents and brother have died. Others, I recognize family from before I was born, 

I will be using mixed media, ink drawing and washes, encaustic, oil glazes, transfers, and charcoal.

There is the progress and finished first painting.
