Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair

My latest assemblage features a photograph of my mother at 17 with her first love. She married him at 16 and suffered her first heartbreak as they divorced 2 years later. The antique pin, which was my mother's, on the hand, symbolizes hearts entwined in the hand of marriage. The vintage song sheet entitled Heartache represents the songs she played on the piano in the 30's and 40's, and the heartbreak she would suffer. She was blissful in this photo at 17.
