"OVER THE RIVER"





This little 6x6 painting suggests some kind of woodsy forest.  It's a study of various textures created with papers.  The tree on the far left is made with a homemade paper using tissue and tea leaves - makes fabulous trunks.
The next tree is some mylar wrapping paper and is very sparkly - too bad the sparkles don't show on the photo.  If you look very carefully, you can see star patterns.
The fourth tree from the left is some corrugated paper I had.  It was an atrocious yellow color that I had to tone down a lot.

Very nice, Carol. Are these creations all from imagination or do you sometimes use a photo and adapt the scene?

Great piece, love all the elements that went into creating the trees. Also love how you've framed them. Amazing what you are able to do with a 6X6" canvas!
