Canvas of Memories – 1966 – 1974

book+of+me+adI did this “map” of my life during the years from 1966 to 1974 several years ago. The original is on a piece of stretched canvas 18 inches by 24 inches. At one time it had something painted on it but I covered that with Gesso, then ran off contact sheets with photos, drawings, writings and other material from that time. I wrote dates and thoughts that I would understand, although others might not. I blacked and whited out some stuff and that’s it. The prompt for The Book of Me this week is “Memory Board”.

    The “Ancestor Approved” really resonates. I was so afraid to tell a story never told. It was finally approved by the ancestors in 2001, with the documentary and trip that followed to our ancestral land, Aguas Calientes and San Luis Potosi , Mexico, in 2004. The way you write and the stories you share are so filled with love and honor! So glad to read them, so glad you do this!
