I heard it through the grapevine…

This mixed-media collage was inspired by a friend who’s dad is busy tending his grapevines this spring.

I created it using hand-painted and hand-printed collage papers, acrylics, watercolors, pigment inks, and colored pencils. For the background I used a palette knife and modeling paste, and layered the foreground elements to create depth and texture within the piece.

    It’s beautiful, Julie. The translucent colours worked really well. Grapevines (and grapes) are delightful. xo

      Thank you for the lovely compliment! I see that you’re a fellow celiac so I’m sending you a follow, a virtual gluten free macaron, and a cup of tea to say hello. 🙂
