"Aspen Lights and Shadows" original acrylic and paper collage COMPLETED © Saundra Lane Galloway

 "Aspen Lights and Shadows"
12x25" acrylic and paper collage on gesso'd MDF panel

Here is the finished version of "Aspen Lights and Shadows".  From yesterday you can see that I added detail and light and shadow to the aspen that were included last.  I tried the keep the most information near the focal area without eliminating the need for a bit in the other areas.  The words were a secondary focus...I didn't want them to be OBVIOUS...but if someone were interested enough to step closer and concentrate they could read them...For a larger version you can click on the photograph.

These detail pics are just to show the amount of work and different factors involved in creating a piece like this.  I LOVE working this way...it just unleashes all sorts of ideas as I'm working...

This will be available on my website in a few weeks, but for now it will serve as another example for my upcoming collage workshop in June  for the Mountainside Art Guild.  I've taught workshops on collage before, but with each class I like to bring new ideas and possibilities before my students as a way to inspire them whether they lean toward the abstract or enjoy a more realistic style...

FUN NEWS...I've just decided to participate in Conifer's Art and Music Festival in Conifer Colorado which will take place on August 7...FUN stuff to be stepping into the world of outdoor art festivals...I haven't done them before, so lots to learn, and lots to acquire so I'll be ready...and...of course lots to create!

HAPPY CREATING!

Bonjour Saundra,
très joli rendu final! Fabuleux ce résultat... J'aperçois l'ensemble des ombres portées. Cela apporte une profondeur et du relief à votre création. Belle harmonie, mon "Léo" irait volontiers s'y promener.
Bon week-end.

I know how beautiful your collages are, Saundra, and first hand too. This one looks like a delightful autumn piece. You can tell you have fun when you do your art. It shines through every piece. Will you see either of the kids this weekend? Your mom? Hope you do!

No, miss Autumn Leaves...my kiddos are too far away as is my mom...but we will talk at least!! and, I DO have fun with my collage works...such a free feeling!
