This is the first in a series of pieces I have been working on more or less simultaneously.  Working on multiple pieces means I can move to another piece or pieces and continue working until I settle on ideas or direction for another.  So far I'm happy with this process.

This little house where Martha Dunn Corey and her sons lived in Pacific Beach is still standing.  And on the opposite corner another great grandmother's house still stands, where Margaret and Joe Richert and their family lived.    Martha Corey's son Fred married Margaret Richtert's daughter Ruth and they lived happily ever after.

I had some difficulty getting a good photo of the painting so I may re-post at a later date if I can do better.

Title: Jacks.
Medium: Collage: Fabric, Paper and Ink on 8.5x11, 48 lb archival paper. And
Digitally Embellished Original Print version. 8.5x11 on 48 lb archival paper.
Style: Folk Art
Size: 8.5x11"
Date:  8/31/18

Versions of Jacks date back to ancient cultures. As children in the 1950s (not quite ancient times) Jacks was a game my brother and I and our friends had fun playing.  The occasional fresh game of Jacks was a welcome surprise in our Christmas stockings.

Jacks Original Collage

Jacks is part a series of retro art pieces I am looking forward to working on in the coming year.

Here's the inspiration ad image.  Part of the fun of re-imagining objects is deciding how to represent them in a way that is understandable but different; how to change the reality without loosing touch with the objects.


Jacks are metal, hard and cold.  So I thought it would be interesting to make them out of a material that was soft and warm.  The balls are shiny and smooth so they became fabric and paper; warm/soft and smooth/hard.  Then it's deciding which details to include or add and which to leave out, and so forth.

Although I thought the photographer who created the composition of the inspiration image did it nicely I needed to arrange the elements into my own composition and one that would work well in the calendar format, which is horizontal; 8.5x11, rather than square.
