a row of assemblages ~blogging

I've been hard at work, making as many small art pieces as possible to bring with me to the Art and Soul retreat in Hampton Virginia, end of April. I know most people are bringing ATCs, charms, postcards... something of that nature. But i don't do any of that. I do assemblage and large scaled paintings. So i made these mini assemblages.

The photos come from my Papa's collection. He was a professional photographer before The Great Depression. And i often use copies of his photos in my work. Here i took pictures and coated them with resin to give them the look of a transparency. I then attached it to a painted, distressed tin and embellished with different items (buttons, keys, metal bits, pieces i scuplted from clay, etc). I dig them. I call the "kinfolk".
