"Photographing the Future"


This is 11x14 on canvas-VERY hard to get a good photo on this one.

My husband pointed out to me that the photographer herself is from a different time period than the people in the actual photos. I had to explain to him that the beauty of art (especially collage art) that EVERYTHING does NOT need to be accurate-and I told him she could be photographing the future, so that is the name I chose for it. That is one of the reasons I LOVE this medium-you can do whatever you want!
Lots of texture on this one-it does not show up in the photo. Layers of paint, old text underneath........ohhhhhhhhhh!!! :)
