Barras New Job
This Canvas is of my Paternal Grandmother. She tragically died when my Father was in his late teens having been treated for the wrong long term illness. Here she is posing for a Carte de Viste/Cabinet Card after attaining the position of head waitress at Dodds Cafe in Ambleside, a more prestigious establishment than the one in existence today. The cards were sent to her relatives and friends on the Orkney Isles where she was born.
Again I started with a 6" Square canvas sprayed with Adirondack raisin colour wash and over painted with super copper lumiere. I chose vintage wallpaper samples to collage a background on much the same theme as the previous one along with vintage lace and punched flowers again.
