This printable is from a vintage hanky collected by Teiko Kazama Ross, my late mother-in-law. So perfect, with its original folds intact, I photographed it and folded it back. It will find its way into the collection already passed on to Betsy Ross Noble.

This hanky has been used as inspiration for me, along with several other items from her stash in a still life painting I did named "Phoenix". Full of symbolism from the Jessi Coulter lyrics hand printed on tromp l'oeil notepaper, the sticky note with a quote from Harry Potter, the ivory phoenix, the handblown mini-vase with the blue 'tear', to the candle mounted in a vintage candle holder and Japanese tea cup. The hanky provides the perfect grounding for this tableau. The baby Phoenix rising from the ashes is a crowning touch. ©Vicki Ross, Pastel on sanded board, 20" x 18". collection the artist.
