Summer Is Just A Sigh Away…

Collage 5" x 7" Canvas

The collage is an homage to one of the best times of the year and is part of the “Four Seasons Suite” I have been working on.

I used a 5″ x 7″ canvas substrate. The handmade papers were altered using acrylic paint, alcohol, water, Ranger inks, and Perfect Pearls Mist. Tea dyed gauze crosses the canvas at the woman’s eye level. Mulberry paper completes the top portion of the design.

I am crazy about Victoriana. The images from Dover books. In my opinion they have the best selection of all.

To quote Henry James: “Summer afternoon — summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”

And Summer will be here before we know it!
