“Foundation of Life” 36″x18″ mixed media

“Foundation of Life” is 36 inches high by 18 inches wide. Definitely the largest of this collage based style I’ve done so far. I really had a good time with this piece. It was challenging and fulfilling at the same time. And I think it turned out pretty good. Score!

Each butterfly was individually cut out to be collaged onto the background papers, then sealed. I used a pallet knife to create thick, rich, textures on the bone and the birds feathers. The delicate bubbles were painted into add their ephemeral and fleeting nature to the piece.

This painting is sold.
