The Story of "Nellie's Threshold"
The story of my collage called Nellie's Threshold came about when I took photographs of an old door and entrance way to my grandmother's home. She had artfully placed tiles around the threshold at her front door. The tiles were at least four different colors and a variety of shapes.
As a child, my sisters and I played with our toy cars and made cities on the walkway where the tiles lay. We made tracks and pretended the space between the tiles were roads. Years later I took photographs of that door and was amazed at how well the tiles looked after so much time. And, I was glad my grandmother had put them there so long ago. I took snapshots of the old turquoise green door and each tile as well as the remnants of leaves & dirt laying around. After viewing the photographs, I saw a collage in the making. I tore and cut the photographs to arrange them in an abstract manner. Afterward, I took one last photograph of the completed collage. While looking at the finished design, my grandmother Nellie suggested I paint the design on canvas. I chose to paint in acrylic.
Many good memories are held behind this door and within this piece. With this I proudly present "Nellies Threshold."
