October Snow ©2012 acrylic mixed media collage painting. Shakespeare's bittersweet masterpiece, Sonnet 73, in a snowy collage painting:

"....Bare ruined choirs where late the sweet birds sang.
In me thou seest the twilight of such day...
"This thou perceiv'st which makes thy love more strong,
To love that well which thou must leave ere long."

I love creating fine art collages that are multi-layered, sometimes hiding words or fragments in the image. This collage is based on my photographs taken here in Colorado. We were covered with deep snow in the end of October before the leaves had even had a chance to fall. The resulting white space, the blue purple shadows, the fiery fall leaves against that backdrop were my inspiration.

Rice and handmade papers were collaged with acrylic medium onto heavy 300 lb. arches watercolor paper. I painted the maple tree leaves and other elements with acrylic paints over the textured surface. The words of the sonnet were typed on my vintage typewriter and added.

Size: 15 x 22 inches (38.1cm x 55.88cm)
Unframed and unmatted.
The surface of the collage painting is protected by an archival protective spray. The edges of the paper are deckled. The paper is slightly curved but will straighten out when framed. This piece can be matted or mounted.

♥️♥️♥️ When you purchase a Sonnet Collage, I will make a donation to the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation in honor of a very loved one. http://rheum4us.org/
