A gift from her fiancé in honor of Nora’s 50th birthday, the couple visited my studio where Nora selected the vintage verdigris frame fitted with convex glass. I chose to create a mixed media collage and painting that is my visual interpretation of Nora. Part painting, part “memory box”, I was able to use trinkets and photographs that are meaningful to Nora such as hearts, crystals, a porcelain rose, the clock face. I took photographs at her home that inspired what I painted on the glass, i.e. the stained glass window design, the crystal chandelier, the spoon from her mother’s silver, the antique clock, etc.
