MAINE COLLECTIVE

Mixed Media Collage with original background photography and
found objects from nature: seaglass, beach stones, driftwood
grapevines and blueberry twigs.
Frame constructed from old barn wood found on the eastern shore in Maryland.
Other elements include metal mesh fabric, skeleton leaves and some silk cocoons.
The nest (not my photography) is the center of all that is found in nature...

Every year, as a family we spend a week in Maine on the cusp of summer...
before the crowds arrive. It's a wonderful, peaceful opportunity to search for
natural treasures hiding in the marshes, beaches and woods.

Really stunning! This piece stirs all sorts of emotions in me, reminding me of long autumn holidays at the family beach cottage(long gone). I can feel the peace you feel hunting and gathering beach treasure.
