Secret Cove gives me the feeling of having a beautiful view all to myself with rich, blue water and pristine coastline. I adapted this scene from a place in Mendocino, CA, called Cypress Grove. If you look north from this place, you will see this cove, but I removed the buildings to give it the feeling of being untouched by humans.
Below in the collage, you will see many pieces of ephemera, including:
-Illustrations of fossilized shells
- A globe
- An owl
- A vintage picture mat embellished with flowers and a ribbon
- A poem titled The Vagabond
- A butterfly (signifying beauty, change, and flight)
- A clock hand pointing up
- A book page about botany titled "New Plants from Old Stems."
These items create a story in my mind that may be different than the story in yours. I don't start with an idea for a narrative. It comes together after the piece is finished. I imagine this piece to be about a world traveler who's very in tune with nature. What do you think of when you see this collection?
