Sometimes, all we have are fragments of other peoples' memories, but even those small pieces can be compelling...I began this painting with an old photo (circa 1900) of my great grandmother, Victoria Augusta Campbell. When she was young, she moved from a remote island in northern New Brunswick to Boston. What a transition that must have been, especially for a single woman at that time. I have copies of letters written to her while she was away. They are from her mother and her brother who are asking her to come home. I wonder how she felt about that. Most of all, I wonder about the day she had this photo taken in Boston. 

Materials: Layers of plaster, faux gold leaf, sparkling gold pan pastel, and acrylic paint on 8X10" wood panel. Sides of panel are painted black. It’s ready to hang as is (no framing required) or the panel can stand on a shelf, in a bookcase, on a piano, etc.

This is an original mixed media painting on a wood panel consisting of a 3 mm birch surface cradled on a 1.5" thickness gallery wood frame. Signed on reverse. This piece has been finished with a matte varnish to protect against moisture and discolouration. Avoid placing all artwork in direct sunlight.
