Shakespearean Sonnet 29: Graphite, an original fine art mixed media collage, not a print.

This collage is a perfect gift for someone who loves Shakespearean sonnets or for the romantic poetry lover in your life. A stunningly beautiful poem that reminds that love is the true wealth in this world.

"...Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
Like to the lark at break of day arising,
From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate;
For thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings
That then I scorn to change my state with kings." " Shakespeare

The handwritten words follow the contours of the paper texture.
I have also included a little hand typed fragment of Psalm 56:8 "Put my tears in thy bottle..." as my response to the poem.

SIZE: 13.5 x 20 (34.29 cm x 50.8 cm)
Completed in 2009. Unframed and unmatted. This piece can be matted or mounted (the edges are deckled).

The first of a series of sonnet collages I began in 2009. Rice and handmade papers were coated with acrylic medium onto heavy 300 lb. arches watercolor paper. Then the words of the sonnet were handwritten by me in graphite pencil. I have also accented the paper textures with the graphite.
