|"The Botanist's Journal"|
mixed media collage on canvas
This is the beginning of a new series.
DISCLAIMER: I do hesitate to say that this is the beginning of new work, a new series, a new anything that implies more to come, as I have done that in the past only to abandon that direction. But I am pretty excited about these pieces. There are 4 of them thus far. And I am off to my studio to work some more once I finish this post.
I am really trying to be more abstract and loose in my approach to collage.
The inspiration is from some botany journals that my dad kept while in college. It looks like they were part of his course work at some point. Although he was a business major and not in the sciences.
The drawing of the lily in the center of the page is one of the illustrations he did that accompanied some descriptions about the plant. I did not use the writing in this piece but did include the accompanying written descriptions in the next 2 pieces.
More to come. At least I know for sure there are 3 more that will be posted!
