I'll be the featured artist at C2C Gallery in Grand Haven, Michigan in August-September 2019. I'm starting to make pieces for this show with a theme of Water - Woods - Words. These are the first two pieces. The forest piece is comprised of 3 cradled panels of differing depths. The shell piece uses a photo I took of shells from a Florida beach merged with a photo of ledger paper from 1854. In addition to the filtered versions of the image, I added in piece of the actual ledger, handmade paper for the surf froth, and gouache.

I wanted to make a larger piece to enter in a couple competitions. This "Surf Sifter" is 24"H x 18"W showing a great blue heron in the surf. I made the collage of the bird using 3 filtered photos cut into quarter inch strips. Then I added irregularly cut shapes of green handmade papers along the edge to give the feel of seaweed in the surf.

I'm experimenting with taking photos of collages I did years ago, running filters on them, printing those out and cutting into strips to make new and different art! I'll show the original art and the new version pieced together in strips.
I cropped an image of a flower garden tighter than a previous use of the image. Then I ran 4 filters in Prisma and cut the prints into irregular shapes. A few pieces of handmade papers found their way into this 12"x12" collage, too.
