She Sells Seashells

I haven't worked in my art journal for a long time, so yesterday (during endless TV time of golf tournaments and Super Bowls) I spent the day being creative.
This page in my journal is to honor my mother, Jane Snedecor Anderson, when she arrived in Southern California from Michigan to begin nursing at Scripps Clinic in La Jolla.  The background is acrylics and tissue paper adhered with matte medium.  I printed her photo on fabric, painted on a Nautilus shell, the hands are drawn with ink and I cut the "37" date from an old photograph of La Jolla Cove.  It's still a work in progress and I will share the page when it is finished.
