|alma and mort|
I spent hours going through photo albums and boxes of images trying to find pictures that could piece together a story. I sent my parents a card (a little lame) to congratulate them with the promise of a gift to come. And then I have spent the last three weeks figuring out how to do this and painting. The dolls were the hardest part and I'm not totally happy with them, but they'll have to do. I'm not great with the computer and took the faces from old photos, resizing them as best I could. I decided to use a younger set for the first 30 years and an older set after that. If I were to do this again for anyone, I'd figure out a good standard body and make a few more ages so I could capture more of the hairstyles.
