Brief Lives
It's been a slow week. Sometimes I feel like I've just run out of steam, especially so at this time of year. Still spring must be on its way and the clocks go forward this weekend. Time moves on. I was given a small collection of old cabinet photos recently and I find them fascinating. Who were these people, what did they do, who did they love? I try to imagine, and put them into my work with my made-up stories of them.


  1. I love this piece, Fran, with all the layers, it adds to the story.

    I am feeling that winter has gone on too long, but the signs are there, birds are singing and buds are sprouting. Not long...

  2. I feel the same way about the people in the photos---and I love the one's you pick. The last part of your post--that is exactly what I think when I look at the one's I choose for my artwork. :)

  3. Love this one!! very well done and like how you created he layers!!! did you use transparencies?? and I too love old cab cards and have quite a few now!!! but haven't used the actual image yet only copies!! maybe someday!! hugs Linda
