Hold It..............SNAP!

Do you think my relatives, or my pets would have held it.......if I had said hold it......or they knew what I had in mind for their picture?


Grandmother............on mother's side............


Grandma Mabel from Texas, as the Horseless HeadWoman............ She looks mean, doesn't she........I guess if you were stuffed and stuck inside a box with only a rope day in and day out you would look mean too.
Mabel small.................. Little did she know what was in store for her. ...........to sit in a wire chair all day long wearing a crazy Halloween hat.

Even my dogs Jethro and Ellie Mae were unaware.....

that were about to co-mingle with my dad Franklin and his mother Gertrude from Sweden..............

Then there are the countless others that are relatives of someone who have unknowingly posed for all manner of art.

Like this brother and sister.........in The Night of the House of Tiddly Winks....
And these Foundlings Three...........who might not be orphans at all.........but being forced to carry all their belongings with them wherever they go.....for eternity.....

This family below is destined for greatness........something to do with Halloween I suspect.........they look like vintage relatives of the Munster Family...complete with crow and all.
So, be wary when someone asks you to pose for a photo...........it could, and most likely will be used in some mysterious work of art....especially if I am taking the picture.....imagine an image of you living many lives throughout the ages. In art everything is fair game for me, and not too much is held sacred.
