I have hung a few works at The Artist Market, 16 W. Pomfret Street, Carlisle, that had not been shown there before.  This is 24 x 24 gallery wrapped canvas; acrylic painting with some collage work.  The rock and the feather were first collaged with tissue paper chosen from my boxes of stash.  The tissue paper is painted with a variety of colors and textures.  Once dry, it becomes part of my "pallette", to be chosen for just the right spot...then over painted to add shadows or more texture and color.  The imagery was chosen as a reminder of our stewardship to our earth and natural resources.
