New Collage, "Surface".

Here is my newest collage that I have completed, (and look! there's color!). I have to say, this is hands down the most FRUSTRATING collage I have done to date...Shooting my self-portrait with the green backdrop in my studio was cake. When it came to physically piecing it together it was extremely challenging. I was using different photographs of moss covered boulders with different focal points in order to create the appearance that layers of moss were wrapping around my face. It's difficult to see in the scan above, but there are at least 100 separate pieces of moss to make up the entire mass of it all. The entire collage took about 5-6 full days to complete.

So how many collages did I say I wanted to finish by 2011?......20?
