New Collage

Again I had trouble getting a great image, but I did my best, the tones are a bit warmer than you see here.
I included many closeups and if you double click on each image you get a clearer view. This one is a 12"x 12", Venetian plaster, teabag, paper, oil, acrylic, graphite, ink, cold wax, bone, feather and thread on cradle board. I left the sides raw as I liked it with this piece. Sometime I plaster and paint the sides and sometimes not. This one is called "The Gift" because that feather was a gift with other feathers from my bloggy friend Lori (Thanks dear Lori!). I am working on more collages and I am really having fun with these. Many more to follow.
*I decided to change the title, realizing what was really going on for me in this piece, I have retitled it "The Sacrifice".
I always love to hear your thoughts.
This image will be tumbled for all those tumblers out there who like it.
Have a great day. XOXO

This piece is wonderful - love the natural colors and the pop of black and I agree the edges look good natural too.

The tea bag really sets the entire composition off -- great collage.

The bone is so like a female torso in a shop window or on a stage. The more I look at it the more levels I am seeing. Lovely work Annie.

Gorgeous! The colors of this look so much like the colors of your coyote photos. (Which I LOVED, by the way! Poor thin little beast.) All the elements of this piece are like a wonderful summary of your environment. I love it!

Annie said...

Angela, Thank you darling. I too noticed that the colors matched the coyote post :-). xoxo

I see you like feathers, I too.

I often worked with feathers.
