Cabinet cards…my latest obsession

Artcrush, Studio news/blog

We visited my Mother-in-law in celebration of her birthday this past weekend- and here she is with her grandchildren:

At her birthday party one of her friends Tienie Potgieter asked me about my art and current intrests. I told her about my recent work and then she offered me a box full of vintage photographs including Cabinet cards!!

I could not believe my luck!

CABINET CARDS: A style of photograph first introduced in 1863 by Windsor & Bridge in London, the cabinet card is a photographic print mounted on card stock. The Cabinet card got its name from its suitability for display in parlors — especially in cabinets — and was a popular medium for family portraits.

So while I am in the process of working through each and every one….finding inspiration, I am also scanning them to create a virtual file- and while I’m at it , I thought I will share a couple with you!

I even love the back of these cards!

Love in the time of….an invitation

This little alien would like to invite all Capetonians to a group exhibition:

Third time lucky and Aim higher

Love is like letting two balloons up into the air: The most interesting thing isn’t watching which one climbs fastest, but which one has the longest string. ❤

I will unfortunately not be able to attend the opening, but for those of you who can make it….ENJOY!
