Floater



She was born in Toronto in another lifetime, grew up in a house somewhere around King Street East and Yonge, which is where I found her photograph, a large cabinet card, mangled at the edges, in Roisin's shop.

I rescued her and took her home because she was no longer unknown, anonymous, one more old photograph in a sea of unknown people who have passed through life.

  1. She is so beautiful Colette in this piece. You are honoring her well. Is that a little Meadowlark in the left upper corner? :)

  5. This piece is stunning and I too see your art moving in new, exciting directions. I am so happy to find people who appreciate old photos like I do. I cherish each one and love giving them new purpose. It is amazing to me that they are not kept by the families. I have "rescued" so many I may need to start thinking about storage spaces!! LOL!! Don't forget I have a free image every Tuesday for you to use in your art! Love, Jamie

  8. I often wonder about all those photos that you see in antique shops & flea markets. I look always to see if I knew them. I like what you did here with this. xox
