An Hors D'oeuvre (without a funny title)

I just noticed yesterday that I've only done 2 posts so far this month.  Time has raced by so unbelievably fast, with the end of the school year (only 2 more weeks- and only 1 of those with the kids!), mountains of special ed. paperwork, and general exhaustion.  I feel like I've been working so hard, and with nothing to show for it!  I've even forgotten to welcome my new followers, and I sincerely apologize.  I'm so grateful to all of you, and hope you enjoy coming along on my adventures.

Just so you don't think I'm a total slacker, here's a little hors d'oeuvre. I'm sorry about the blurry photo, but my scanner does not like lumpy things. Also, I couldn't think of a good title for this one.  The best I could come up with was "Ashes to Ashes, and Dust to Dust in the Wind", but that just didn't get it for me.  Feel free to make suggestions.

Ingredients: map fragments, vintage book pages, vintage ledger page, watercolor pencils, copper crayon, image transfer.

In the meantime, I am working on the salad and main courses- coming soon, I promise!


  1. oh my, i love this sharmon... xo

  2. "Qwerty Laments" Hi Sharmon--just staying in touch! Grtat piece. Wm

  3. O Sharon! Love this one! Very cool how you've managed all the layers...almost looks fossilized. Are we having soup too?

  4. this is very cool, Sharmon, and if this is the appie, I cannot wait for the main course!

  5. There's something very visceral about this piece. How about "The Burial Ground"?
