"Poppies Galore" acrylic/collage © Saundra Lane Galloway

 I think you'll have to click on this to see the detail...

My big ole 30 x 30" collage came together a little faster than I had originally thought.  I'm not used to working so large, but it was fun!  I had originally thought I would add words to this, but after getting it all on there I felt they would really compete...so not necessary...

I'm not thrilled with the photos I've taken of this piece all along...don't know if it is the papers that are reflecting or what...but after a few attempts this is the best I could do...Suffice it to say it is VERY colorful and FULL of a LOT1...But, I'm likin it MUCH better than the ancient aspen stand I had done...

As I've been working on this the past three days I was thinking about how my paintings are really like my friends.  We artists that work on our own...(which I think is most of us)...work in solitude and often end up doing crazy ish things like talking to our work, or the floor, or the radio or whatever is still long enough to listen...for me, it is my artwork...I was wondering if any of you ever felt that way.  It can be lonely at times, a little too quiet...but then, for me, when I produce something so colorful at least I have a smile for my new friend who brightened at least a moment of my day!  I think that is why I am so happy to "know" all of you...there may not be sound...but there is definately communication to lift the silence in our minds!  Thank you all!!

HAPPY CREATING!!

Truly beautiful, Saundra. I couldn't say I liked it MORE than your ancient aspen stand, but I can say that I like it as much as...

I always like when you add your words to a piece and I don't think they ever conflict with a piece. They are usually small enough and faint enough that to me, they are just one more hidden gem in your gorgeous works.

I don't know about the photographic gremlins, but what you've posted here is absolutely beautiful! It's cheerful, colourful, energetic and a wonderful work of art - no wonder you talk to it!

Hi Saundra. I, too, have a hard time photographing the details of my paper collages. I suppose I could just zoom in and set it on that little flower setting for fine details but. . . well. . . I just don't know.
Regardless, I'm posting to let you know the secret of my contented, solitary, work environment. Ready? (wait for it) Audio books!! The greatest thing I've found. The biggest downfall is that if I don't have a good book, I tend to find it hard to work. I've got a subscription to Recorded Books, but I don't always like all the books.
Anyway, LOVE the poppies!

This piece is very creative and the colors are perfect. Wish I could see the original to see how the collage pieces look in the piece. Must be even better.

Je découvre ton blog avec un réel intérêt car j'aime beaucoup la peintre. Cette composition inspirée de coquelicots ( je les utilise aussi dans mes créations land art) est vivante, puissante et frêle à la fois. Leur couleur est bien interprétée et font de cette œuvre une réalisation attachante et très plaisante. Félicitations,

Roger
