I finished this today and just matted it. It was a tough baby to birth, and I think it’s because I sent a photo to a friend of the preliminary images I wanted to use, so I felt obliged to stick with the plan even though other things evolved during the process. It took three or four days to complete. The framed collage is 18″x22″.
Below is the photo I sent to my friend of the images I thought might work and then a photo of the completed piece. I called it King Baby’s Feast. The pomegranate photo in the center is my work, and there is also some other mixed media things going on, including black gesso. My only complaint is that it’s kind of matchy-matchy, but that’s also what ties the images together. Anyway . . .
