The Slow Cool Waltz to Spring

It is such a gorgeous day-and it reminds me of the day that I was inspired to start cutting these photographs, almost a month ago.

There are parts of all of seasons in this piece, with the burst of color from fall as the bottom layer, the snow-encrusted oaks as the next (and main layer), and the rose “pieces” as the next two (alluding to the coming spring and summer). I was looking at the natural “lace” created as I cut into the oak. Since I used it twice, and inverted it, I was also able to get a greater play with the negative space

This piece is all photo collage with marker. Framed and matted, 16"x20"
