Summer Time, Beach Time

I wanted to make another composition with an inviting walk down to the beach. I took the original photo for this on the upper shore of Lake Michigan. At first I thought I'd do a horizontal landscape, but then felt the big wood tops of the walkway were a bit distracting. I cropped the image into a square and made this 12"x12"x1" collage (middle photo) using three filtered versions of the scene with some Michigan road maps added into the clouds and handmade green paper in the grassy areas.


  1. It's very interesting to see the original photo right there with the collage. I know you've done this before, but this example particularly striking. Dramatic difference in the two. The collage is so inviting--I want to walk down to that beach!
