  • Phootsies Photo

    This is wife, middle daughter and granddaughter. The photo was granddaughter's idea. When I saw the photo I knew I had to make it into a puzzle. It was about 10 hours cutting. I ran through a little over a dozen scroll saw blades and it was a little more difficult to cut than I anticipated. I don't know why exactly - maybe because I was actually free hand cutting on the 'color line' and I was trying especially hard not to screw it up. It was due on Christmas and thus, it's a little bit late; but only fashionably late. I had the photo turned into a poster at Walgreens (which they do for an affordable price and all online) and it is glued onto 1/4 inch Baltic birch plywood. It is 14 x 18.

    I put their names on their pant legs; I put the year in as a figural and I put the dragonfly in as tribute to my sister. (Interestingly, I saw 3 faces of people on the rocks as I was cutting. No one I knew, that's for sure, but some of the rocks looked like they had faces on them. That amazed me).

    I liked this picture because it is 3 generations of women who are important to me; I loved the creativity by granddaughter in coming up with the idea of all three women (okay, one is a little girl) having their phootsies photo'd; and I hope by putting it into a puzzle that will help keep it around and keep it as a conversation piece maybe long enough for granddaughter to be the grandmother and explaining the picture to her granddaughter.
