"Spring Beauty"
22" x 30" Torn Magazine Collage
on Canvas
The first buds are on my Irises in the garden and I looked at a few paintings I've done of Irises over the years. I liked one where I did lots of negative painting, so I decided to use the same approach on this piece. I've worked many hours this week, starting by putting in the background and then doing the images on top. I'm not sure I'm done. I think I may put more color in the Iris on the left.

How beautiful, Mary! Your collage work is some of the finest I've ever seen. You have a real talent for it! Me? I've tried it and I make a huge mess...paper stuck to every finger and all my clothes...and an image that is ridiculously hard to figure out. LoL

Thanks, Sherri. I was veryt lucky to have a 4-day workshop from a real master of collage. Believe me, I am a mess when I do it and always work in the garage!
