I found this fine old house driving around an aged neighborhood. I stopped and took a picture and decided to go inside if I could. The windows were broken and the general atmosphere was one of serious decline. Once inside I wandered through the rooms looking at the devestation that was all around me. I could only think that once this was a fine elegant home where people lived and enjoyed life. I found an old doll lying under some trash and thought of the child who might have grew up in this house. I sensed memories, history and roots embedded in the house that would soon be lost with its demolition and destruction.


This work is three photos blended together with a lot of digital brush work done throughout. I did some image adustments on the layers with duplicate layers and opacity changes. also some masking work with the brush.
