A peaceful sits curiously the autumn foliage. Shades of orange and brown compliment the black and white image of the cat. The collage is mounted onto a light tan paper called Stonehenge. Really beautiful.

"Autumn" is a mixed media collage made up of a linocut cat print, a botanical mono print. This is a unique, one-of-a-kind artwork.
___________________________________________________________________

The original inspiration for my recent collage work has come from the pile of imperfect linocut prints that I have accumulated over the course of the last 4 years. Parts of them were good, other parts, unacceptable. I knew I wanted to use the good parts somehow, someday. That time is now.

The colorful background is a mono print. A thin layer of acrylic paint is rolled out on a plate of gelatin, and foliage was placed on top of the wet paint. Paper placed over the top was lightly pressed, and the paper peeled back, revealing the botanical image. This was done three times to create a layered effect.

The acrylic embellished papers come from my love of painting. I use various texturing techniques with the paint to create a, "visual texture."

*All materials used for this collage are acid free and archival.

*Size: Art is approximately 7 3/4" x 10," mounted on a 11"x14" light tan sheet of Stonehenge printing paper with one deckle edge on the bottom.

*Framing Suggestion: I would suggest having an acid free mat cut for the collage. Acid free mat board will keep the paper from yellowing with age. The mat will keep the collage away from the glass, just in case moisture gets inside the frame. And always, the best way to protect any original art piece is to be sure to not hang it in direct sunlight or close to a bright lamp which will age and fade the artwork.
