This page is in memory of my friend from elementary school, Anthony Osborn who died of cancer today. In high school, there was a group of us that always hung out together. We spent at least one night of every weekend as a group laughing and have a great time. We went bowling, we went to youth group at our church and when we turned 18 we went drinking together. Anthony was one of the people who was at my surprise 18th birthday party. I always felt safe when I was with that group of girls and guys. After I married, I moved away from my home town and haven't seen Anthony in many, many years. Today, that doesn't seem to matter. My memories of those times are so clear and so full of joy and love. Rest In Peace, Anthony. You were a great friend to have growing up.
The face was done by tracing a face in a magazine picture onto tracing paper. The background is lightly gessoed book page. I glued a paper napkin over that surface. The face was then glued on top of the napkin. The whole page was then painted with a gesso wash. The page says.... Her Memories Wander in the Garden of her Youth. I used a metallic sharpie that doesn't show up well on the scan.
