This is a collage I completed using paper and acrylics measuring 12x16. It's bordering almost on the abstract in my opinion, hence the dark title.

Nicely painted! I see you hid her hands:)

Well done. It is a dark title.

Yes, I didn't attempt her hands as I usually shy away from painting people. I took the photo of this woman while on vacation in Greece. I've always wanted to paint her. Instead she turned into a collage!

This is an unusual piece. Something about it stirs the emotions and there is an air of mystery. I like it.

Nice work!, you've captured the mood and her composure very well.
Yes, a bit on the dark side of life, but so be it everyday, everywhere.

Well done. A lot of depth in this. Intriguing to have the same pose in the photograph.

Well done, especially the plastic around the flowers. Is that part of the collage? are the flowers a part of the collage?

The flowers and parts of her dress were collage. The plastic wrap was painted. Tissue paper for the background and on her face was adhered and then painted . Thanks
