Shakespeare Sonnet 116 Collage Blue Gold Original Mixed Media Love Poem
"Sonnet 116: Blue Gold" is an original acrylic mixed media collage, not a print.
Completed in 2011. Unframed and unmatted.

A timeless love poem:

"Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments; love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds
Or bends with the remover to remove.
Oh no, it is an ever fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken..."

SIZE: 15 x 23 ( 38.1 cm x 58.42 cm)

One of a series of Shakespearean sonnet collages that are multi-layered, sometimes hiding words or fragments in the image.

How I made this one:
Rice and handmade papers were collaged with acrylic medium onto heavy 300 lb. arches watercolor paper. I have painted a medieval decorative pattern over the textured surface. The words of the sonnet were typed out on my vintage typewriter and added. There are other hand-drawn and painted details. Tiny golden glass beads run down the center of the painting. The surface of the paper is protected by an archival protective spray.

The edges of the paper are deckled and slightly curved but will straighten out when framed. This piece can be matted or mounted.
