Here are two more from the "ghost town" series that I've been working on. These are digital photos I shot in Bannack, Montana, then printed on transparent fabric using an inkjet. The fabric is layered over antique letters mounted on reclaimed pine boards. Each collage was altered with watercolor and, finally, sealed with encaustic wax. It's the wax that gives it that dreamy look - and it smells just like clover honey. Art that you can sniff? Good art.
I'm liking the way these media mix together - a blend of the new, new, new, digital photo and fabric printing technologies and the old, old, old, of the antique handwriting and the ancient technique of encaustic painting.
