Turn Your Back on Me


I am taking a Jane Davies Color class.  We are in our final week and one of our last projects is to create an abstract landscape using warm colors.  This was a complicated piece for me. It seems that I am incoporating what I have learned from Jane's Text and Image and Color classes into this landscape. In the collage process I used newspaper, self-made papers (mostly from deli paper), acrylic paint, magazine pieces, pan pastels, and watercolors. This image is what I would expect to find in Kenya or in South Africa.  I particularly like how there is a triangle formed by the elephant/butterfly, the tree, and the dragonfly.  I am warmed by the colors. To me they really represent the heat of Africa.
