Some of the collage work I will be listing here were created as small works to possibly be done into larger pieces. This particular work "Tears", is one of them.

This is a 5" x 5" collaged artwork that was done on a piece of sturdy medium density fiberboard (MDF). I started with layers of overlapping papers and then added layers of watercolor until I achieved the desired effect I was looking for. Various graphic elements were added to create the images you see here. There is pen and ink and graphite work also applied by hand, along with some crackle and tinting to create an aged look. The sides are also collaged with papers, tinted and a crackle is added to them to give the feel of ages ago.

I am particularly fond of angels and feel that the colorful cherubs compliment the sepia tones of the angel. I am fond of this quote "Tears are the words the heart can't express" and feel that it expresses how we all feel at one time, or another.

The piece is intended for the wall, but could be displayed on a small easel also. There is a 1/4" deep piece of MDF on the back with a hole for wall mounting and the piece would stand out from the wall 1/4" which makes for wonderful wall mount presentation. The back piece is painted, signed and dated by me. The entire piece is sprayed several times with a matte varnish for protection.

This would make a wonderful gift for that someone who you hold special to your heart, or as a wonderful gift to give to yourself.
