"The most important thing I can tell you about aging is this: If you really feel that you want to have an off-the-shoulder blouse and some big beads and thong sandals and a dirndl skirt and a magnolia in your hair, do it. Even if you're wrinkled."   — Maya Angelou

Materials:

  • Rust color feathers
  • Magnolia pods
  • Dried protea flowers
  • Coin tree leaves
  • Assorted pine cones
  • Dried blossoms
  • Antique brass beads

This dramatic collage (one of the bigger pieces I have worked on) was inspired by the Protea blossoms I found at the S.F. flower market.  It consumed a lot of time to create, as it slowly guided me to the final result:  an elaborate work in warm tones of rust and gold.
