important things i’ve learned too late


important things i’ve learned too late; an original mixed media collage on cradled wood panel; 5 x 7 x 1 3/4 inches; canvas stretched over a wood frame

The focus of this collage is a wax monoprint. I like using these quite a bit because of their semi-transparency –– how they let colour and marks from beneath show through.

This is a thoughtful little painting that makes a perfect gift for someone –– I package it and label it nicely, and even mail it directly to the recipient for you. And there’s nothing like getting original art.

I always pick a few quotes for my listings, and for this one I have three:

It is never too late to be what you might have been.
~ George Eliot

Three o’clock is always too late or too early for anything you want to do.
~ Jean-Paul Sartre

Everything has been said, and we are more than seven thousand years of human thought too late.
~ Jean de la Bruyere

Winter is here, but there’s still plenty we can do.
