Elmwood Cemetery Finally Scanned!

Elmwood Cemetery Portrait

The best part about this new, wide-format scanner of mine is that I can go back and scan in all the pieces I wasn’t able to on my own time! This pretty baby here– literally– is one of them. I completed this sometime several years ago no for a celebration happening out at Elmwood Cemetery. Several students, myself among them, were given the opportunity to participate in an on-site portrait of someone buried there. They had to be finished on-site, so contributors and beneficiaries could walk around and experience them as well.

While most students had an actual person and history to explain as visitors dropped by to see what they were doing, I was challenged with a commemorative piece dedicated to all the children/babies buried in the cemetery without names or real markings– still borns and children lost early on to diseases and things.

I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and would jump at the chance to do it again 🙂
