Cynthia Smiles

20 X 24 torn and cut paper college portrait of my Bahamian friend Cynthia. Some bead work at the finish. Thanks for looking.

Cross posting in portraits.

Re: Cynthia Smiles

Wow this is awesome , incredible work. It must have take you a while to finish. I have seen this kind of collage doing flowers or a scene but to capture a person's face and features is something else again.

Re: Cynthia Smiles

Thank you all for very generous comments. It was a labor of love and took forever but I learned a lot! This was my first collage portrait but now I want to do more.

Beautiful - so much detail to discover after taking in the image as a whole!
