First of Many Pages

Since I have finished painting the inside of my journal, thought I would share with you what I have added to the inside of the book. I found some older photos that I thought would be great for an art piece. This picture was of my sister in 1997 before her gastric bypass. As I stared at the photo, I couldn't help but ask, "what was she thinking about?" Knowing I wanted to do something special with it, I reflected back to class I took with Karen O'Brien and how we altered photos. I thought this would be a good photo to try some of the techniques we learned. I am very pleased the way this project turned out. Thank you sister for the inspiration.
