confluence, 8x8" mixed media collage on panel
i've been pushing myself to work with slightly different colors lately. the colors in this piece were inspired in part by the amazing foliage all around maine right now, and its contrast with the clear blue ocean these last sunny, warm days. it's gorgeous this year - take your breath away gorgeous. i haven't worked with mixed media too much since the beginning of 2011, so i am enjoying getting my hands messy again.
exhibit A of the loveliness: i took this photo in the azalaea garden the other day. i am probably taking too many purposefully blurry photos lately, but i love them; the way the light twinkles through the trees is so nice to try and capture.
and i always lovely the sand garden. it's my thoughtful spot. for those of you who don't click through from your reader, i also used this photo as my new blog header for fall.
