October's Tack Down Tuesday #2

Fish Lake
8 x 8 collage on watercolor paper, Matted 2" all sides to final size 12 x 12 ready to pop into a frame.

Meaning behind the art:
I just got back from a trip to the upper north east of Wisconsin this weekend and heard stories of my husbands childhood and saw the beauty all around me. I had started this piece before when I was presenting a workshop at Dillman's Creative Art Foundation in May of this year but didn't finish it till now I've been able to add a few more fish to the piece and hopeful capture the stories told.

$55.00 + tax and s/h


  1. Love it! And inspired by good ol' WI nature. Yay!

  2. Just beautiful....so peaceful and soothing.
    And we all can use a good dose of that! ;-)
    Excellent work Laura.


  3. Your Tuesdays are certainly worth waiting for Laura!


Thank you for stopping by and viewing my collage chatter, many creative blessings and peace to you and yours
