Alma's Homework

I began the collage, Alma's Homework, with a page of my grandmother's math assignment from the 20's.  I then built the rest of the piece around that.  Through the erased lines of her diagrams, I felt I could see her thought processes as she worked the geometry proof. I wanted the graceful diver to mimic the elegant lines of both her handwriting, and the diagrams.
