fun with layers 01
This is an interesting challenge, Lynn. I'm always hearing about collage artists who work by adding successive layers until they feel the piece is done, so I thought that would be fun to try for a change. I somehow ended up with two chairs and six black circles!
The bird is a South American species—a bare-throated bell bird, named for its bell-like cry. The plant is Australian—a green hooded orchid. The fish is an opah, a strange species that is nearly six feet (two meters) long: as it swims, it beats its long pectoral (side) fins like wings. The thing in the upper right is a front foot of a cane toad.
