The Process

The spring months afforded me the opportunity to return to the moose sketch, started last summer, and finally bring to fruition! I am pleased to debut the completed work, a union of painting and collage techniques. The rustic hillside cabin and towering mountainscape were rendered in acrylic and watercolor; the moose and flora are hand-cut paper in my signature collage style.

The Story

I find Merriam-Webster's definition of this beautiful creature rather lacking, and so I have rendered my own visual definition in paper and watercolor -- a fully textured and rich mammal who stands surveying the land and perhaps, like all of us when we hang at the precipice of such a beautiful expanse, filled with awe and held there, dreamlike.
