A curious kitty sits in the garden. Shades of green and metallic gold compliment the black and white image of the cat. Really beautiful.

"In the Garden" is a mixed media collage made up of a linocut cat print and acrylic embellished colored papers. 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.

I started with my linocut print, "In the Garden," then cut out the foliage from my hand embellished painted papers and glued them to the surface of the print. In the last two photos you can see the layers of the collage.

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 6"x6"," mounted on a 8"x8"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 and framing it in a 10"x10" or 12"x12" frame, if you like a lot of mat. 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.
