Self Portrait Collage
Layer 1 --- numbers (representing my career as an accountant), a photograph of trees (for my love of nature and current fascination with Winter's bare trees), and a small scrap of scraped paper (for my love of old buildings filled with rust and crumbling bricks and peeling paint).
Layer 2 --- added the photo of me printed on the QA subscription card (appropriate for my current career as a fiber artist), some torn strips from the same papers as layer 1, a chunk of painted paper, and a scrap of text (for the font junkie in me).
Layer 3 --- used some white spray paint to soften things up a bit. I like the effect --- the hard lines of black and white are gone now, and the photo of me "pops" a bit more.
I haven't decided if this is finished and should be left as a gray-scale collage, or if I should add a wash of color to it. And if I add color, which colors? Any opinions?
