Excavation.. mixed media collage

My kids suggested the name for this piece. Brendan saw it as a narrative about an archaelogical dig revealing a lost spirit. For me it began as an exercise in texture and dimension and using a photoshopped photo of the face from a previous piece so Brendan's interpretation was a delight! I'm really happy with this one and now I'm working full time on a much larger canvas.

I've had many emails asking about firing the canvases- the whole piece goes in the oven. Always remember, 275F is far below the temperature required to burn wood or cloth.


I always love to get comments!
