Day 2 of The Invasion

Okay, so here is the finished product (the one with the double matting, to match Day 1). The first one in this series (the one with the colorful bird) was purchased by my colleague Dr. Tyson Kreiger. I was motivated to continue doing a series of these pieces because I like them and it seems that others do too. I was contemplating including a bird head in each one, but when I saw how nice this lady's head looked, I just couldn't resist. But... I did try a composition with a golden eagle head (as shown). When I used this head, I certainly had to change the color scheme of the background space imagery. It provided me with the opportunity to do some photographing to use in a workshop about collage composition I hope to put on one day. Enjoy!

  1. I'm enjoying these in several ways. First: I don't know if this is a first for you, but I'm engaged by the procession (and anticipation) of a series. The advent of color in each piece seems a significant psychological, as well as aesthetic, aspect. I have a tendency to crave narrative and you, perhaps unwittingly, have provided it here. Looking forward to Day 3! (Will the odd 7/8 blue sphere make an appearance?)
