I made this piece to submit to a local show of women artists entitled "This is Me" and to use for my monthly project with my Art Sistas for the assignment of "flight/flying". I chose to work with a photo my friend Mary took of a prairie plot owned by our friend Linda (all three of us are in the Art Sistas group). I added the illustrations of a bird taking flight to the digital file and then ran several filters on the photo. After choosing 3 that worked well together, I printed those out and cut into strips and did my usual art making process. I then added some strips of yellow and green handmade papers, little torn circles of purple and rust to highlight the flowers, and shredded US currency from the Federal Reserve.
