Weekly Collage Series #3: Communications at Sea

Communications at Sea.  2011.  collage on paper

This is an original piece of art entitled "Communications at Sea", the third piece in my weekly collage series. This collage was inspired by the inside of a security envelope with a wave pattern. so i thought its the water, an interesting scrap of paper became the land, and i added the seagulls and a little section from some sheet music. seagullls dont make the prettiest of songs but lets just imagine. it makes me happy.

The piece measures 6.5 x 7 inches. collage/ mixed media on paper. To purchase click here.

Elementary Modulation, 2011. collage on paper.

The second piece in my weekly collage series sort of came together out of some random pieces of paper: trimmings from some prints i made, a little scrap of japanese paper, the header from an old music book... this strange landscape is what i came up with. 

size is 6.5 x 7 inches. to purchase click here.


Weekly Collage Series: Cover Me Up

Cover Me Up.  2011.  collage on paper

The first piece in the weekly collage series is entitled "Cover Me Up". mixed media collage on paper measuring 6.5 x 7 inches. i've been working a lot with stencils and overlay techniques, on the usual nature theme. guess i'm feeling a little nostalgic of the fall hence the colors. materials include, old book paper, a magazine cutout, colored pencil, over layed with translucent ochre vellum, with micron drawing. if you'd like to purchase this you may do so through my Etsy site here.
