Torn Book Page Bird Stitched Collage

Winter is a collage combining paper, paint, fabric and stitch. The accent colors in purple and orange hint at the remnants of Autumn while the muted lighter areas suggest a cool Winter sun. The collage began with a book page. Small scraps of fabric and torn paper were glued and stitched, a bird image wad added and finally paint was applied to small areas to complete the piece. It's a mixed media meditation on the beauty of the ever changing seasons.
