|"Apple Blossoms" from the Botanist's Journal Series|
14 x 20"
mixed media collage on canvas
The illustration of the apple blossoms and the writing about it are layered on a painted canvas with papers, fabrics, and threads. Sewing paper seems to be imbedded in my art practice. Also incorporated are mono prints on silk organza and some stamping. There is some dimension to the work from the sections where a vintage quilt was incorporated. I really want to incorporate more direct drawing into these pieces but am having a hard time making that leap.
