Mixed Media constructions

Mixed media works on black arches - spray paint, cut paper, prismacolor and found objects. Each work is 11 x 15 inches. 

These pieces started as an exploration of larger landscapes. As they developed, I realized they worked better small scale. Collage materials were added to complete the vision.
