A Collage

                                          Untitled Collage  6x8

 The last day of the workshop we were to work on an old painting to make a collage. All my old paintings are in FL so I got to pick one of Karen's as the background of my collage. By the time I was finished there was very little resemblance to her painting except some of the original colors. The dimensional effects of this work are not appreciated in the photo, which is too bad. We built our composition and then added the dark areas to draw the eye to the center of interest. I enjoy adding the little bits of "bling" at the end but I have to be careful not to overdo the calligraphy, gold ribbon, and gold dots. It's  hard to know if you're doing too much until it's too late.

  1. Oh, I love this! And, I do know what you mean about the bling - I love to add gold bits, too!
