But It's Christmas

But It's Christmas


This is a study of my other niece - not the one in the bright red dress, smiling rather perfunctorily at me, in the most successful of my early mosaics "What it Feels Like for an Uncle."


No, this is her older sister, the more melancholy of the two. This is a blend of a few pictures I took of her at that party just loving the forlorn look surrounded in the festivities of a family party. I collaged and blended it with some lovely, and some ghastly, pictures of christmas decorations from the most tasteful of silver bells, to a most daunting blue tree with built-in white bulbs....


It's hard to be sure, but I believe I know how she felt.
