The collage to the left is my representation of autumn in Washington. The evergreen trees, school, fallen leaves and sea life. I wanted to get in touch with my PNW roots and thought these pictures would be perfect. The collage to the right is my take on Life and Death. You have the turkey meatballs, flowers, dead trees, and the dead seal. I saw that my husband was making turkey meatballs for dinner one night and thought, ‘Oh! The texture on those turkey balls are perfect!’ Then I remembered that I had taken a picture of the dead sea lion downtown Bremerton during the class field trip, so then I came up with the Life and Death idea.
