My Pulp Redux contribution to Through the Looking Glass

the year was 1896...


poor Richard...


but time waits for no man...


did he die of a broken heart...


This is my contribution to the second page in my Pulp Redux progression of


This side tells the story of Maude's husband Richard
and his unfortunate death.
We never know the cause of death...so there's only speculation.
However, after his death, Maude takes her inheritance
and buys herself a much needed eye glass.
She then heads off to meet her lover Damien
in the city of Romance.



A side view shows the underside of my first page of
peeking out and a pocket for the watch.


 These are two sides to a small signature piece I made
as a contribution to a book Deb created. In this book she
designed tiny collages to represent each person in the collaboration.

Oh,that was a beaut brainwave! Continuing the story with a piece on Richard. Very clever. I need to look at this over and over and take in your details...that heart close up with the net bit and the nest...I'm just loving it. I made heart pendants the other day for the first time. The black and everything isn't at all heavy or depressive, your work is far to beautiful for that!
Oh and that firey heart witth the wire!! I love it!! You're too clever!

The watch in its little pocket, and the rustic wireheart, is gorgeus, and again there is so many deatils, in your work, that I have to return for another look ,to get it all.
