collage experimental

I love to do floral still lifes in collage. I start with a collaged ground and build the still life on top using many layers. Still life art can be static, but with the layers of images underneath the main subject matter, I find it exciting to see how much meaning and content I can achieve.
This piece is in the collection of a great friend who is an accomplished pastel artist.
