New year, new work

I'm preparing more work for my Woods-Water-Words show to be in Grand Haven, MI, this fall.

The swan piece is 12"x12" and has a quote floating in the water in front of the bird: "I understand that everything is connected, that all roads meet, and that all rivers flow into the same sea."

The squirrel piece is 8"x8" and I've layered up more than a dozen layers of paper around the tree hole to give the piece more depth. In addition to cutting 3 altered versions of the photo into strips, I've cut up some old newspaper text and interspersed it in the tree bark areas.

The lighthouse stands in the harbor at Grand Haven. I've placed a quote in the sky in this 12"x9" piece that says: "Once the lighthouse is seen, the rest of the sea is ignored."

I used the phone app Prisma to alter the photos in each of these art pieces before printing copies out and cutting into quarter inch strips.
