"Mt. Evans Inspiration" acrylic/paper collage © Saundra Lane Galloway

 "Mt. Evans Inspiration" © Saundra Lane Galloway
12"x12" cradled wood panel that I've added an extra amount of depth to...:)

"Mt. Evans Inspiration" is the second piece I've created using a particular mountain silhouette.  (It has been rainy here, so the pic isn't the best...it seemed no matter where I put it there was some sort of odd glare...ahhh well...another day for final photo!!). I am STILL enjoying this way of working, so it is likely to be around for awhile.  I've decided to name these pieces with the name of the mountain in the title to bring attention even further to the specific uniqueness of the painting.  I have also come to a conclusion that will make for a little more work for me in the beginning, but will bring a cohesiveness to my presentation in the end.  The       cradled pieces I bought are a mere 1/2"-3/4" in depth which I feel doesn't give the work the presence I desire, SO, I'm going to add some depth to those pieces as well by attaching a little more cradle...I'll let you know when I finish one how I like it...:)

I have a fun new piece I've begun using my collage method, but adding flowers...:)  I'm going to practice on a big ole 30x30" used canvas I have first...I think it was a ZZ Top painting first, then I painted a stand of aspen on it about 15 years ago...tired of that, so now to my newest FUN thing to do on it!!  I think I will be working on two at once this time...similar subject...just different size...the second one is about 12x25"...deep cradle...YIPPEE!!

Looking at this up close is a must. Thanks for the detail picture. The varieties of paper you use is so interesting. Great job, Saundra!

This one is so beautiful. I love that you've collaged on the leaves rather than painting them on this piece. It gives the piece a more three dimensional look which is really cool. Love the words across the middle too!

What is "cradle"? It looks like bark on the trees. I LOVE this one...really unique and woodsy. I once did a huge painting of a huge old dormant tree by an old shed. I used maskin tape for the bark and then used black and brown india ink to color the tree bark. Turned out pretty cool.
