strange sunset

From my archives.

THEME: Three pieces of paper

This week I'm going for "less is more." Any theme, any subject, but no more than three pieces of paper. An all-white or an all-black background doesn't count as a piece of paper, but any other background does. Have fun!

She's Leaving Home

I have always loved the Beatle's song "She's Leaving Home". The doll who appears to be doing the same has been cut out for some time and I decided now was the time to paste her down. I have always loved the artist Ralph Blakelock. The background is an oil on canvas, circa 1885, entitled "The Three Trees". Lastly I felt the collage needed more than the doll and the painting so I pasted them all down on the cover of a brochure I picked up. What you see is a portion of the Société Anonyme Signboard, no date, paint on panel, artist unknown.

Marie Toilette's live performance of her 'Apple-tree Dance' ..


Unfortunately Marie couldn't find the right apples so she improvised with balls of wool, but due to her very expressive dancing style these almost got her strangled.
Luckily for us she turned back to knitting warm undergarment again ;))

the object of their attention


My husband Bob, who has a PhD. in botany, says the tree is a laurel oak, and based on the vegetation growing on it, places its location as in or close to the panhandle of Florida.
