The Process

Waiting for the Sunset is a unique blend of painting and paper collage. The background is an abstract watercolor painting of desert flora in pink and purple, reminiscent of a Southwest sunset. I then layered a colorful paper collage of a burro/donkey over the painting. Each piece of paper was hand-cut with regular scissors to fit within the piece. Tight chevron cuts to the layered vintage papers create a rich texture with the appearance of fur. This donkey is a beauty with a setting to match.
