Animal Wednesday - Parrot collage

A collage done on a rainy Saturday - definitely multi media. Printed organza, which was gel matted to a watercolor paper which had been painted gold and silver. Magazine image of a bird, Lipsum orum printed text on adhesive vellum, card stock butterflies, gel-image transfer of the sun.

Whew!

What a lovely piece! I have always envied cockatoos their crest-what a great way to express all kinds of emotion.
