I painted a picture of a woman one day. Her dress was hideous, her face, well, i liked it then. so i went off the cliff and cut her head out and thought i'll attempt a collage. well, I was almost finished with this piece after working on it off and on for a week. When it was near done, i hated it. i hated her facial expression too. so i waited, almost threw it away...then this morning i made changes on her face and added a few more "things". She is ready to frame..
The top left says "i flew to the cottage and it was lovelier than.." And the center words, "I am here to live out loud". The bottom left says "Sweet, Sweet Moonlight".
The foundation is plaster substrate on felt and paint
Fabric paper, plaster, dyed cheese cloth, tiny dried flowers on her neck, fabric flower on her hair and more...I do like it now!
