Trick of memory -

"Memory of Gigi"
digital collage by Mick Mather
Once again, an image has taken on a life of it's own during the creative process. As I was fine tuning the final layers of this piece, it struck me that this looks uncannily like my paternal grandmother. I have a photograph of her - sitting on the steps leading up to her apartment - surrounded by my brother and me, and this is how I remember her. That said, were I to hunt through the family photo archive, I'm fairly certain that I'd be proven wrong. For what it's worth, then, I believe I'll leave this one alone for a while. :)
