Fish and Dragonfly is a layered paper collage inspired by camping in Maine in the summers. The fish are swimming, the dragonflies are checking out the water plants. Everything takes on a different pace at camp!

The inset shows the plants, rocks and fish I added on top of the background layer of the collage. These add both details and texture to the collage surface.

The final touch for this collage was to add a dragonfly near the top--hovering over the cattails. The inset shows this detail a little closer. The finish collage is available, here, and will be featured in Wednesday's blog post.

I will also be bringing Fish and Dragonfly to the Winthrop Sidewalk Art Festival this coming Saturday, August 19, 2017. The show runs from 9am to 3pm in downtown Winthrop, Maine. I hope to see you there!
