WATER TOWER : collage

A crow at work. Watching from the Water tower. Checking on the gauges. All systems ready to go. SOLD

This is number one in a series of three mixed media collages called “A MURDER OF CROWS”.  Probably one of the greatest collective nouns around A MURDER. It is right up there with A GAGGLE!  Flock and School just fade in comparison really.

For the birds : encaustic collage

 

 

There goes the neighbourhood…. again. A crowd of crows, watching, a watch-faced moon. A crowd of houses, numbered, oddly. Who would live here?

NB: Having gifted the original “There goes the neighbourdhood” to a dear friend. I missed it and decided to rework it, this time encased in  encaustic wax, and rename it “for the birds”. 

A CROW IS NOT A BIRD: encaustic collage

A Crow is not a bird Benoit  (Bella)

Mesmerized by the moon, enshrouded in the mist can he read between the lines.

The ephemera: old manuscripts from the 1800’s, a handwritten love letter, a map of manhattan, an old ledger page, an old recipe, a vintage post card, an old seal and a black bird.
