the tree of my life
mixed media/transfer on birch plywood 17" by 12"
Clearly, this is my family tree. My maternal grandmother is at the tippytop. My namesake is at 3 o'clock holding my mother as a baby. I had just finished this piece for a family gift this Christmas and well, it clearly is full of our personal history. It fit the IF prompt -- clear, for me!

Susan, This is one of the prettiest 'family trees' I have ever seen. What a gift!!!
Awesome collage, Susan! I so admire people who can pull off a fresh-looking collage like this and imbue it with all kinds of meaning.
It made a perfect family Christmas gift, Susan. I'm sure there'll be tears of joy in your family Christmas gathering, when they all see it. :)
what a great family tree!! i like the line work especially.
What a creative family tree: I love the colors, the images and everything about it.....what a great gift!!! How lucky the recipient is to get such a personal and heartfelt gift! Pat
This is so beautiful! What a great family tree indeed. Love the pictures.
nice! I'd love to do a project like that one day!
What a lovely idea for a family tree!
I think we are related...metal man
A beautiful rendition of a great idea! I love the colours.
This is a beautiful family tree! It looks more like a vine growing upwards and windong around each person. I like the texture of the background - scratchy and colorfully distressed like oxidized copper. The fine lines of the tree add a lyrical touch. Very nice!
beautiful...a very nice tribute!
Great idea and what terrific gift! I'm working on a family recipe book for everyone in my family this Christmas. You got me a'thinkin' that adding an artistic family tree to the recipe books would be an extra special treat.
