Maple on Vesuvius

I took a photo of a little red maple leaf on the shore at Vesuvius on Saltspring Island last October. This week I did a little digital tinkering and snipping with scissors to come up with this little 4x4 canvas. It's heading out to Artemsia Gallery in Westport Ontario to show a little of the west coast's fall colours.

If you're in the mood for mixed media inspiration-check out Lorrie Grainger Abdo's blog to see her progress & process with a wonderful new mixed media piece. It's heading to an exhibition and she's on a deadline so there's an element of suspense! She's very brave and incredibly generous to document the process on her blog and she wins extra points for courage by using tar as an ingredient..... I think I'll do something similar with the next piece I start, (not with tar, with documentation)- thanks for the inspiration Lorrie!


  1. Gera, I'm loving these pieces - your work, as always, is stunning.

  2. Gera, belated thanks for the shout out on your blog and your kind words. I have had lots of interest throughout the "documentation" process and found it a good way to connect with readers that don't usually comment. I didn't expect this and found that to be part of the fun. I guess what I'm saying is, if you're so inclined, I would endorse the WIP idea for your blog too. People, including myself, are interested in not only what you do, but how you do it. Have good weekend. Lorrie


I always love to get comments!
