Shakespeare Sonnet 73 Collage, Blue Aspen Trees- Acrylic Mixed Media on Paper © 2011.

Shakespeare's bittersweet masterpiece, Sonnet 73 in an aspen tree forest:

"....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. The immortal words of Shakespeare look great in a contemporary setting.

Rice and handmade papers ( with fragments of leaves and vintage music) were collaged with acrylic medium onto excellent arches watercolor paper. I painted aspen tree trunks over the textured surface and collaged on copied images of aspen leaves. The words of the sonnet were typed on my vintage typewriter. There are hand-drawn and painted details.

SIZE: 15 x 22 inches (38.1cm x 55.88 cm)
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.
