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.

Understanding Limited Series

Each work in Dolan Geiman’s portfolio is unique and hand-crafted. Some are one-of-a-kind pieces while others are reiterations of a recurring theme, denoted as Limited Series throughout the site.

Each piece in a Limited Series is created with a inimitable collection of found materials so that no two are exactly alike. Iterations will vary slightly in color, pattern, typography and frame; each is crafted in a limited quantity and without a predetermined edition numbering.
