| Another wonderful collage workshop with Dale. This piece includes some of my own artwork printed on paper towels and paper napkins then a gel medium is applied. Using paint, gold leaf, and copper leaf for additional layers. I have also added additional painting strokes to the two humminbirds on the right side of the image. Something interesting came to mind once I completed this piece not intentionally. It reminded me of the Navaho legend, how the hummingbird lost it’s song. The symbolic images of this piece reflect that legend. I share this legend in my hummingbird talks. It is a charming legend and worth reading or coming to one of my talks to hear it. The hummingbird loses it’s song but becomes the “jewel of nature,” that we see today.
||These pieces are a series of hummingbird collages that I have called “Hummingbird Jewels.” Each are individual with my hummingbird art as the focal point.
