This piece has a lot going on. Techniques used are photography, cut and paste, tissue paper, and PhotoShop. First I collaged a photo of my paternal great grandmother and grandfather holding my father. I added the house, the persimmon, homemade tissue papers of which there are three different types and finally I added a self-portrait of yours truly. After scanning the collage I added the PhotoShopped leaves created from tissue paper. I slightly posterized the piece in PhotoShop. I made the background paper using alcohol inks on freezer paper.
