"Cave"



The perspective from inside the cave, looking out, brings to mind the glorious joy that Lazarus must have felt when he was released out of the tomb and back to his world. We might feel the same way when we are safe after a frightening experience.

This image is a stained paper collage. Sheets of white tissue paper are stained with diluted fluid acrylics, dried, then adhered to the backing with mat or gloss medium. The transparency of the stained paper allows for layers of various color to develop as the torn papers are pressed on top of one another.

Glad to see that you have joined the bloggers of GCWS. This piece is interesting to me, I have used tissue paper before but not combining it with acrylics. You will have to share sometime.
