This is a photo of my Irish father-in-law as a boy.
He was a quiet, gentle man who loved me like a daughter.
I inherited all the family photos, documents and ephemera, sorted it all out, sent photos and documents to my siblings-in-law and kept the rest -- antique family stuff, letters my husband wrote to his parents from boarding school, his report cards (my mother-in-law kept everything, bless her!) and have been making collages for myself with some of the photos.
This one is made on an old envelope (I love working on old envelopes), painted, and stitched. It will go in a journal that records my life as a Copeland, which will probably end up back in Ireland when I'm gone.
Be good to your friends -- Kevin Bacon
