This is not a photograph. This is a 16″ x 16″ collage hanging on my living room wall.
Yes, I finished Beaded Lace a while back now and after a trip to the framers I’ve had a chance to forget about the flaws and imperfections that frustrated me so much when I created it. For the first time in a long time I saw this collage through fresh eyes and I really like what I see. Actually, that’s an understatement, I love this piece.
It seems I was so caught up in the 30000 tiny 2mm squares of paper and beads being glued into place that I totally forgot to look at the picture itself. Beaded Lace has such depth and intensity that I never even noticed when I created it. Now it leaps off the wall at me.
This is not a photograph. This is not even a collage any more.
It’s a portal to another dimension.
