My family were "savers" and how lucky for me. This is a page from my mothers autograph book, remember those? They were very popular way back when. This page dated 1933 was written by a man with the most beautiful handwriting. Little did he realize that this message would be used in a piece of art someday. I love the significance of that. The page was copied and made into a silkscreen.
This is an old postcard written to my grandmother; it uses her maiden name; since she was married in the early 1900s, I figure it to be around 100 years old - another little piece of history. I made this into a silkscreen also and placed it upside thinking it to be more interesting. The picture of the man is a drawing my son did of no one in particular - thought it was a great face.
