My print, Snake Charmers, is available for purchase on Tiny Showcase! Here is the link: http://www.tinyshowcase.com/, and here is the image:
The original piece is a collage made from 19th century lithographs that I found on ebay, which is my favorite place to look for source material when I have exhausted my local antique market/bookstore treasure troves. Just for kicks, here is another piece in this vein:
I love the way these snake/shroom creatures take on such personality. As I've mentioned before, it's always a welcome change to switch over to working on collage after spending a good chunk of time doing watercolor. The tightness, for lack of a better word, of working in watercolor can be really exhausting. The inability to erase or go back a step, the constant tightrope-walk of keeping enough of the white of the paper and not letting the painting get muddy-- it's as if I'm holding my breath for much of the time that I'm painting. In comparison, collage is pure fun and play: cutting and pasting and putting pieces together like a puzzle. It's really nice to be able to jump back and forth between the two types of work.
