Working from a given theme is something I have little experience with, hence this really is a challenge. Of the two songs I immediately wanted to work from I have completed only one piece. The other is still a viable concept but I need more time to execute it.
This past winter I stumbled upon Agnes Obel, an incredibly talented singer/songwriter/pianist. Her entire album "Philharmonics" is stunning but one song in particular has touched me, "Riverside".
My collage interpretation is fairly literal and though it is a simple design finding the right pieces was difficult. I think it carries the tone of the song as I hear it. Actual size is approximately 8 1/2" x 8 1/2".
When I eventually complete the other song's concept I will share it. Open-ended time limit however.
