Path by the Lake is a 16" x 20" collage inspired by hikes in Maine. The first step for me (after hand-stamping the paper) is to cut the paper in bits and adhere it to the canvas to start the background.

The next step is to add paper layered details on top of the background. Trees, ferns/bushes, rocks--all the fill out the scene.

I will be posting the finished collage on Wednesday's blog post. It's in the final stages of being varnished (to protect the surface) and adding a wire on the back for hanging.
