Yesterday, I started working on this 20” x 24” collage. I finished the background layer, including the window, which overlooks a mountain scene. Today, I will be adding some more details - a vase, some flowers…not sure what colors I will go with at the moment. The tedious part is over. Adding details is always the fun bit!

This morning, I am putting the finishing touches on this 24” x 30” collage wall art: When The Flowers Bloomed. It is made using traditional cut and paste collage techniques. I hand-stamped and altered the paper before cutting it into bits for the designs. The collage will have several coats of varnish and the back wired before it is ready for purchase.

Collage wall art (8” x 8” to 12” x 16”) available for sale is here; printed greeting cards here; small format collage art from my show box here.

I put the backing wire on this 11” x 14” Flowers in Blue collage this morning. Flowers in Blue belongs to my on-going flowers in vases series and is available for purchase here.

This collage is made using my own hand-stamped paper with acrylics cut and pasted onto an 11” x 14” x .75” canvas. The sides are wrapped and the back is wired, so no additional frame is necessary. I do not stock floating frames (too many variations), but they are available for most canvas sizes. Contact me for more information.

It’s been rainy and snowy the past couple days in Maine, so I have had no excuses for getting work done in the studio. This Apple Blossoms #3 collage is my latest 8” x 10” finished artwork.

Apple Blossoms 3 Work in Progress

I hand-stamped the paper first, then cut it up in pieces to make the background, vase, stems, leaves, and, finally petals for the flowers.

The only thing left to do, besides packing it and shipping it off to its new home, is to put a few layers of varnish over the top to protect the surface. I will add some wire on the back as well, so this Apple Blossoms #3 collage will be ready to hang.

Just wanted to give a shout out to everyone who stopped by my booth this past weekend at the Maine Harvest Festival. I enjoyed the lively conversations and the festive atmosphere. It was a lovely way to end my show season.

Over the next couple days, I will be posting some smaller works of art in my gift shop. I just updated my collages and printed greeting cards this morning, so everything listed is available.
