Paper and Ink Imaginings

Sunbathing Mother’s Day Card

This is a card for my Mom.

The main image is on a wobble spring, and intentionally mounted with the lady leaning. When you make it wobble, it looks like she is falling.

True story: My maternal grandmother was sitting in a similar lawn chair at our neighborhood picnic sometime while I was in high school. She was watching the softball game, beer in her hand. A small plane went over head (we were less than 10 miles from a small community airport), and it caught her eye. It must have gone straight over her. She watched it diligently and leaned a little too much in that webbed lawn chair. She went over backwards. One of those slow motion visuals. She didn’t get hurt, but she did spill her beer.

With that story in mind, how else could I use this image for Mom???
