I discovered this old piece of sheet music called "Ebb Tide" and was intrigued and wondered what kind of story it could tell. I gathered other images and text related to lake life and matched these background elements with a picture of Carter Lake that was snapped this past summer while hiking. This is what I imagine past stories on this lake included. A constant ebbing and flowing of water and a constant ebbing and flowing of various narratives, some full of adventure and others more contemplative and still.
6" x 12" Paper collage and oil on cradled panel. Coated with an archival, matte varnish. Collage materials wrapped around the edges to create a finished look that doesn't require framing. Wired and ready to hang. Is also stable enough to sit independently on a mantle or table.
This piece comes ready to put under the tree.
