This is another 6x6" cradled collage piece. I am liking the 3/4" width for these pieces that I've stained, but have done a few with the deeper cradle. The challenge here was to represent the summer pines with all their greens and still show good contrast. I love working with green and there is about 5 different greens in there that were mixed (on purpose, who knows how many by association...:)) for this little summer forest scene (ooh a title for one I've been planning to do!). There are a number of handmade papers addded to this as well as a store bought one or two. Soon I am going to play with this process in a different subject matter...been thinking fruit...very exciting to think about! But for today there is another 12x6 cradled piece waiting for me. Happy Painting to you all!
