The collage backgrounds of my work can often look like the ghosted image of a watermark. But unlike a watermark made to distract and take away from an image (so as to protect it from being stolen), my collage elements are designed to add depth and dimension. These elements give the landscape painting body and story. This particular river has quite the story and it's history acts very much like a watermark...making it impossible to replicate or mistake for another.
16 x 20, created with paper collage and oil on 1.5" cradled panel. Finished with an oil-based, archival retouch varnish. Collage wraps around the edges to create a finished edge that doesn't require framing. Wired and ready to hang.
