COLLAGE TREE PAINTING




Something really different!  Well, the trees are usual but the collage is NOT!! AND it was super HARD!  Don't let anyone tell you collage is easy.  It takes such a flair that's really outside my comfort zone.  If it seems easy you've got a gift. You are really lucky.  I really really like the way it looks with the paper collaged in the tree like that but I probably won't do this again.  I've never been so frustrated. Acrylic paint is also not my thing....ugh! I'm glad it's over. :)

It is really, really a beautiful collage. But it doesn't look easy to me. I've only done very small ones and not many at that.

Absolutely lovely painting - I love collaging canvases - I think it was all the papier mache I did as a kid.

It's always good to try something new. Even though you found that collage and acrylics are not 'your thing' you have still created a lovely piece of art. Well done:) HPPF
