The Only Type of Tea Party I Can Handle

Dated September 16, 1924, this vintage scene shows my Mom, center, and two "boyfriends" seated at an outdoor party.

C O L L E C T I O N — Truth be told, this photo seems to be a birthday party, not a Tea Party, but y'all know what I mean. I've recently found this old print, and have decided it will be one of next pieces on wood. I'll colorize it, and then print out several variations of it to then be "assembled" along with paint and polyurethane. This image is strong enough to not be included in one of my collages, but I might use some other smaller accent shots with it.

At this point, this is a completely raw scan. I haven't adjusted the contrast or tonality yet. I'll probably make a checkerboard pattern using a mix of black-and-white and colorized prints.
