The Umbrella Dream

Mixed media has really been my thing lately….I found that being an “artistic multi-personality” pays off when you combine different techniques and media to produce a coherent piece.  Aside from my digital photo collage work, I’ve been doing some watercolors mixed with actual cut-&-paste collage and sometimes photography, as in my newest piece, “The Umbrella Dream”.  This 15″x20″ inch work is done on heavy, slightly textured watercolor paper and is based on a macabre, bizarre dream I had a few months ago, which took place in a hill top cemetery (which doesn’t exist in reality…as far as I know…) which had black umbrellas perched atop of each tombstone.  It was a dreary, cloudy day….the rest has faded but here’s the piece that this dream inspired:

I hope you like the new work!
