This is one in a series of long, narrow collages that are part of an effort to try new shapes and sizes, and to - literally - make my work grow. It's a mixed-media piece that includes a vintage book jacket, hand-made lace painted with acrylics, a postcard back, an image transfer (bird in nest); and antique embroidery engravings at top and bottom from Peterson's Magazine. I'm wrestling with presenting these, that is, whether to mat them or make them wall hangings. 4.5" x 11.5" on canvas.
