Under The Stars

Under the Stars, 10.5 x 8.5 inches
ingredients: vintage book cover; vintage book parts, ephemera, and sheet music; found objects (antique optical lens), stitching

This one is definitely a maximalist piece. The spell check informs me that this not a real word, but it is because I just made it up! To me, it is the opposite of minimalism; in other words, did I go too far? Everything but the kitchen sink, right? For some reason, however, I think it works. Everything, after all is under the stars.

This piece is available for purchase on my website, here, along with several different-sized prints of the piece. Happy Monday, everyone!

    1. You're right about balance being key, Mary Ann. I've thought of covering some of it up, but I don't think I will after all.

  4. maximalist in the way of reading a great story .... such perfect harmony.. xp

    1. Thank you, Dear Cat; I think I went a bit overboard but I kind of like it anyway!
