"The Joy of the Pathless Woods" acrylic/handmade paper collage © Saundra Lane Galloway

 "The Joy of the Pathless Woods"
Acrylic/handmade paper collage
7 3/4" x 15 3/4" MDF panel with 1 3/4" cradle

As always I am highly enjoying working in my new style.  I keep waiting to get tired of it, but so far...only thrilled!  NEXT will be cherries in a really fun little long skinny.  There are times when I don't add words, but with my trees, it seems to work...The longest period of time I spend on these pieces is sitting and getting inside my head until words come out...I sit and think about how I feel when I walk among these trees and eventually a thought forms...I scour poetry, and see if any words feel right, and then I am limited to the size of the piece as to how I will phrase my thoughts...It is only FUN!

The cradles will be my major way to finish my pieces.  I leave the wood raw until it hits me as to how I want to finish them...At first I thought I'd only do one thing; stain...but some seem to scream for a different finish.  For me that is FUN...again!

So, now off to think on my cherry piece, and do a little work on my garage sale...

When I read your words, Saundra, I am always struck by how content you are. I wish I could find a bit of that for myself. At any rate, I love this piece. The colors are bright, my beloved trees included and the whimsy of the phrase dancing through the trees...All something that brings me in to this piece. I wish I was seeing this one in person. I suspect it is quite beautiful! I see these raw wood sides and they scream "gel stain" at me. Not sure why...I think it is that transparent liquid tint that you get with it (I am recalling that gorgeous green on your tv stand!) This or orange...(Course, that is just my personal thoughts; not an edict or dictum or anything! LOLOL)
