A while back, someone gave me a group of brand new, custom cut matts in small sizes. I also had quite a few strips of torn watercolor paper left over from a former project. So I made this torn paper collage to fit one of the 8" by 10" matts. It is composed of 9 different strips of torn watercolor, layered on top of one another, to suggest waves and sky. I left the white edges of the torn paper to create contrast and to suggest the white crests of waves. I added one small sailboat for a touch of bright color and whimsy.

The inner dimensions of the piece are 5.75" by 4." The artwork is lightly taped to the matt so that you can change the color if you wish. The last photo shows a white matt laid over the top of the brown.
