"Serpentine" is another piece of my mixed media series focused on creating collages using old and discarded books. It is comprised of book cover cloth, end papers, binding mesh (super), an old map and pulled together with splattered ink and gold leaf. The collage is "built" on watercolor paper and then adhered to the wood cradled board. The edges of the board are painted black which adds to the beauty of the piece. This is my way of repurposing abandoned, ordinary objects and turning them into unique works of art.
