I am no longer selling my driftwood collages. I simply wish to share them with you. I hope you enjoy their natural beauty.
This piece took several days. Lots of selecting, rejecting, selecting, placing of different pieces. When it came time to glue it together and screw it together, I decided to change the background cross pieces. Everything changed! I had to add pieces spontaneously. Then, the next day I added more.
The center piece is a strangler fig I believe. It is quite interesting. The bottom left small piece of driftwood is quite nice.
