sources for research and photographs have been: Family archives, The Library
of Congress, Ellis Island, Americans All, and the Georgia Archives.
I used photocopies of photographs, which were pertinent to my main subject to create a paper quilt which I laminated on a canvas, then painted with transparent paint.
I then used an enlarged photocopied image of a single photograph to obtain a transparent photo-transfer.
This image was laminated on top of the quilt then using transparent paint in layers, created my painting.
