I have been buying bulk lots of cabinet cards to use in my art work - it seems to be cheaper than buying individual ones. Invariably in among my 100+ year old cards there will be a few 'bonus' ones, more recent photos. I got thinking about these photos, they are not the style I normally use in my art. However, I wondered about these women whose images had become freebies, and knew that somehow I had to pay them there due.
These women were real: they loved and laughed, flirted and cried, danced and sung; they are our mothers, sisters and friends.
These are the first pages in an altered book to celebrate the lives of 'Real Women'. I may go back and add more detail to the pages later, but for now the plan is to keep each page simple and the focus on the woman.
