Christmas Gifts: Dad's Memorabilia Box

Not all of my family and friends are art fans, so at the holidays sometimes  I make things that are well outside of what I normally do.  It's always a good exercise to attempt a new material or imagery!  Here are some of my favorites from this past Christmas. (Sorry for delay in posting, but didn't want to give anything away).

After cleaning out Dad's house before he downsized, I found some old postcards mom wrote to him while they were dating, and pay stubs from the 50s and 60s.  I used my new favorite medium- encaustic- to collage them together on top of a wooden box.
