This is Sam and Vickie


Sam and Vickie are brother and sister and I took the liberty to paint my version of them.
I think I got the sweetness and brother-sister likeness even though not a likeness to the photo.

I came back from my road trip with treasures. 
I went to see my friend and organizing guru.
Yes, we were organizing her stuff as she is in the process of down sizing.
My friend had a gillion framed family portraits and our project was to remove them from frames. 
I brought home the frames for the Garden Palace gallery.
She added the family photos to her genealogy records.
But when I saw one that really spoke to me, I took a quick iPhone snap for reference. 
This is Sam, my friend's father and Vickie, his sister. 
For real.

  1. I love this project so much!! What are you mounting each little portrait on--is it wood and what are kind of adhesive are you using?

    1. Thanks Janet, I'm not mounting each on the board. It is a wood plank 12 X 36 and I prepped the board first with paint and then glued each little square of text from an old book. I planned the format and I'm painting on the text squares at random. Eventually all of the text squares will be a portrait.
      Thanks for your visits.
