"They Frame the Majesty"
12x12" acrylic/paper collage on cradled Paulowina wood panel
The sides have been stained for a finished look.
The trick is to allow the words to flow in and around the trees without being obvious.
As you may remember from earlier posts on this piece I was working to see if I could retain the silhouette of a particular mountain, still working the way I enjoy with these tree collage pieces. This particular one is of Conifer Mountain; which is the next mountain up from where we live. I am also really enjoying adding the element of phrase to these pieces as it touches but yet another part of our senses...or at least the emotional response...You will also notice that I've added Pines to this piece. I enjoy adding just a hint of the branches to these trees...another horizontal/vertically bit to the composition.
We have been getting some new birds the past week. I caught this little guy yesterday in a rare moment of sun...don't know what KIND of bird it is...anyone know?? He is bigger than our usual fare of finches and sparrows and such...I notice that he intimidates my little ones a bit...I'm suspecting that he is just passing through...
I'm excited to have my table saw all ready to go...my husband was kind enough to put it together yesterday and I had my first lesson...I will be making my own cradles for my panels...which will save money and time. I have to admit, I feel a bit heady...it is a powerful and loud thing to add to my tools...FUN!
HAPPY CREATING!! Now, off to work on a collage with my paper casts...
