Original Collage Mixed Media Picture 'Once Upon a Time" is on a 11" x 14" canvas. The canvas has been overlayed with a gold, brown, and black acrylic wash. I have layered various shapes cut from a vintage print on paste board and a paint by number picture. Then, I embellished it with items from my stash of 'found' items: the swan was a pin that I no longer wore, covered buttons that fit with the color way, a brass drawer pull plate, a verdi gris lion that was a single pierced earring, and a medallion with an old master image on it.

It can be framed or not. I have carried the wash to the sides so I can be hung on a nail as is. I also feature it as an interactive art that starts the beginning of a story/fairy tale...thus, the title "Once Upon a Time". Can you make up a story for your child, yourself, or a friend?

I had fun working on this picture. It is waiting for the perfect place in your home. I would love to sell it to you.

This item comes from a non-smoking, no-pet home.
