Illustration Friday: Total...

"Here at the edge of the world, the lovers attempted to total the stars."

For this week's theme, I decided to merge my painting and collage sentiment a little more. I started off building up a ground of collage, then I painted (faux-fresco style) the figures. I did it pretty quick... so it's a little rough round the edges. Hope you all enjoy.

Dreamy piece! I like seeing the edges of the collaged pieces all come together. The blues are beautiful.

Thanks for all the comments! It's totally inspiring.

To answer an anonymous emailed question... NOPE, the pieces in the up-coming show don't look like this in the slightest. Here and there you'll see some similarities, but Illustration Friday (when I have time to do it) is a nice challenge and diversion from my regular work. Sometimes they over-lap, but more often than not... they are completely separate.

the feeling of this piece is , current, dreamy, restful, searching, serene..... To me at least...
