Our Lady Of The Lost and Found
Did you know that The Virgin Mary has appeared on the cover of Time magazine more than any other woman, EVER? I found that fascinating - and it inspired me to create my first Altered Book - Our Lady Of The Lost and Found. On the page(s) I have pictured here I created tiny Time magazine's, each with an image of The Virgin Mary on the cover. I've slipped them into little sleeve's that have a clock face (Time!) stamped on them.
In this view you are gazing across over to the West Jetty (Newport Harbor) at Balboa Peninsula and the world famous "Wedge" bodysurfing spot. On the horizon you see Santa Catalina Island ablaze at sunset over the Pacific. My family and I spent many weekends on Santa Catalina Island growing up --- memories I cherish.
