Birch By The River - mixed media collage art made from recycled materials

Birch By The River

Birch By The River is a 24" wide x 36" tall x 2" thick mixed media collage on canvas.  Birch tree trunks are three dimensional (see close up photo below) to add interest to this piece.

This piece is "green art" and was made from recycled materials.  I first started with a used canvas that had undesired art on it and I painted it with primer and waited for it to dry. I cut used wrapping rolls in half and glued them to the canvas for tree trunks.  I then added multiple layers of square shaped paper pieces to create the tree bark, river, ground cover, sky and tree branches, and glitter. Once dry, I sealed the completed piece with a UV protectant.

I chose square shaped pieces of paper to create a more abstraction piece.  This abstraction piece is simple and will hang well in a log cabin to an industrial loft.  Dominant colors are:
