From the Road #25 - Layered Paper Collage

From the Road #25 Collage (Detail).jpg

Adding to my From the Road series, I've started making layered paper collages that show flowers growing from cracks in the tar.

I found it tough to get photographs with consistent colors because of the tonal changes in the background. (Any photographers out there who have tips for this, I'm all ears).

This collage is made using hand-stamped paper, acrylics and thread on a 20 in x 24 in x 3/4 in (51 cm x 61 cm x 2 cm) canvas. It still needs varnishing before it's ready for my shop.
