While the varnish is drying on this Red Chair and Purple Blooms collage, I will post a few pictures showing details of the collage.

The collage is made of hand-stamped paper with acrylics. Each piece is cut and adhered to the canvas, starting with the background for texture and moving to the detailed flowers and leaves.

Red Chair and Purple Blooms is part of a series. I decided to revisit the theme of an early collage, Forsythia, which featured forsythia in front of a barn window. These collages have a lot of little pieces, but I never get tired of seeing the pieces develop. Last week, I completed a piece called A Spring Day, available in here in my gift shop, which is also part of this series.

Larger collage art is available for viewing in my Collector's Gallery. Please contact me for purchase information.
