"Aspen song" my first collage painting! It is a series of 6 painting that hang vertical- telling a story of the birds in an aspen grove. Made with handmade paper aspens and "Backpacker" magazine birds along with watercolor and chalk. It was like child's play creating this for my friend Mary Burnett for a Destination model home. Picasso said, "All children are Artist, the problem is how to remain an Artist once he grows up." so I took a recess from Adulthood with the child in me- The Artist. And, now that I have had a taste of how fun it is to create mixed medium art- I have great ideas a brewing in my head and plans for some future play dates with my inner Artist.
