One Hundred Collages Art

Cottonwood Leaves #2

Cottonwood Leaves #1

I have been working on several smaller sized series, hoping to create some work good enough for the One Cause online auction for cancer.

I have two 8 x 10 pieces and 3 postcards from the Cottonwood Leaves series.

The cotton broadcloth is monoprinted using a Gelatin Plate process and "bug nibbled" Cottonwood leaves I gathered late in the summer. They have been layered with hand dyed cotton and batting, machine stitched and bonded to watercolor paper, then embellished with brass leaf beads.

Cottonwood Leaves #1 will go to the One Cause auction. The other will go off to one of my galleries.

Lovely... and the One Cause Auction is a great idea... I've put a reminder on my calendar to participate and purchase something (maybe yours!) as a treat for myself... :-) (my walls are filled with art but these collages are small enough that I should be able to find a spot for one of them)
