"Amanda" is a beeswax collage that I created in Claudine Hellmuth's class. It is an 8" x 10" canvas featuring my maternal Grandmother, Amanda Keck Diebel. The central photo is of Amanda as a little girl, all dressed up in her finery. Upper left is a photo of Amanda in her nurses uniform. Lower left is a photo of Amanda with her two children, my Mother, Barbara Diebel Greiss and my Aunt, Ruth Diebel Timte. The entire collage is attached with beeswax. The background is layered first with tissue paper and then floral paper to suggest antique wallpaper. I then tore strips of the floral paper away to reveal the tissue paper.
