    A really interesting piece, one of those works that I would love to see in the flesh.

  • Thank you, Bec. I agree it is better in person. You can see the 3-d Clouds throught the heart window and read the text written on the layers of transparency. There are also keys dangling from the bottom of the piece that I cut out when I uploaded the image on a black background.

    Wonderful color and I agree with Bec that things are lost in a flat glossy representation of collage/assemblage. Truly beautiful!

  • Thanks, mmargot. I also agree. It’s hard to get the sense of something highly textured and/or dimensional in 2-d or virtual space. The encaustic layer also makes the piece look a little cloudy in the pic.
