"Lida's Swan Song"

I can't tell you how good it feels to be back to work...in my little studio.  Sometimes, life gets hectic, and it seems impossible to find the time to play with paints and photo images and all that sort of goodness.

So....first, let me say I am in LOVE with Lida.  Lida was my friend, Rochelle's, great grandmother.  Lida is the lovely Victorian era woman playing the guitar...

Rochelle was gracious in offering me the opportunity to put Lida into another world.  "Lida's Swan Song"...

In this new world...Lida's new world, she is playing her last earthly tune.  Soon to be guided onward (to a lovely place)!!  If you are interested in purchasing this new piece..you can find it in my Online Shop.

I am currently working on a second piece that will show Lida in a bolder, calmer, more focused way...

But, as you can see, I am just now only in the thoughtful stages of this new piece.  Much more work to do.  As soon as both "Lida" pieces are purchased, I will offer them together as a print set!

You want to know a funny little thing?  Just as I finished "Lida's Swan Song"...I came upon this photo...

Another lovely young lady playing guitar.  This particular lovely is my grandma Watson.  My mom's mom.  I just adore her boots!!  Thanks to my brother, Robert, for passing this image along to me.  I'm over the moon excited to use this image in a new watercolor/collage!  Hmmmm...wonder why guitar playing women keep popping into my life?  Curious for sure!

Also...please know ~ I do commission pieces as well.  If you are interested in having your own family photo images inserted into a new world...please email me with any questions at:  gerushiasworld at AOL dot com.

Thank you so much for stopping by and having a look.

Until Next Time:
Gerushia's New World
