WORK IN PROCESS...

 The beginning...12x12" cradled panel with silhouette of Conifer Mountain blocked in with acrylic

I'm thinking the name of this piece will be taken obviously from the words within...whether I use the whole phrase or just part I have not decided.  This collage came from the silhouette I am working on for our church logo. We need a new one and the church is in Conifer CO, so I am taking the range and incorporating it.  I woke up this morning thinking about the Conifer mountain; especially since I will be doing the music festival at Beaver Ranch in Conifer this year....  I got excited at the thought of incorporating both trees and mountain like I've been working with collage...and I wanted the mountain to be recognizable for anyone who might care.  Thus the steps that got me to the stopping point for today...
 Since I want the mountain to be recognizable I am very careful to keep the silhouette as drawn and painted...I begin my collage with the mountain...
The paper added carefully...
I went ahead and put the tree tops back in just in case they show through...always thinking of the possibilities of the end result!
Now begins laying in layers and adding more to the sky...
Preparing for the words...
Words added...and beginnings of trees that will be up front...

There will be both pine and aspen in this I think...as these two types of tree are most prevalent on Conifer Mountain. Tomorrow I hope to finish this piece...My mind is already on to the next one...as it should be!!  

HAPPY CREATING!!

I love that you've retained the silhouette, so the mountain can be identified, while producing an image that will be far more evocative than straight-up realism.
