Little Immensities


copyright by Marsha Jorgensen 2/18/10. All rights reserved. You may not copy, download, print, or use this image in any way without my permission.

This is an 8 x 10 collage using a face from flickr's Very Good with Computers, a main body from lisasalteredart.etsy.com, legs from my own vintage postcard, wings from greatmusings.com, shoes scanned and altered from a magazine, hair and headpiece from a found vintage picture in the public domain, and an elephant from the Library of Congress. The background is from flickr's 'Playingwithbrushes', the ruler is from flickr's Ha! Designs - ArtbyHeather, the top scalloped piece is from designer Sande Krieger of Two Peas in a Bucket, and the black and white border is from Crowabout.etsy.com. All pieces were reprinted, hand cut with scissors, and hand colored with ink and pastel.

I love the elephant... so cute tucked under her arm.

Shannon said...

Such beautifully detailed work. It's amazing to me when I read about where you get everything (hair, legs, shoes, face.... and so on). You literally build the character from the ground up, and what an amazing job you do of that. So nice to see that your up to making art. Maybe your artwork will in some small way help to ease the pain of your grief. Take care!

Amy said...

So glad to see you back! I wish you well in heart healing time. Only way to eat that elephant is one piece at a time, one day at a time. Very apropos. Your comeback piece is beautiful, lovie.
Take Care -A

Wow! You mad e great comeback with this piece. She's beautiful. Love the colors and the fact that she's carrying such a 'heavy load'. I know that the past few weeks/months you've also been carrying a heavy load and I can see that this piece is helping you to heal.
Art is an even greater healer than time in my opinion.
So keep on making these beautiful pieces and working your way back to normalcy.
hugs,
cathy
