I recently acquired a vintage book that included an image of a girl on a telephone with a perched parakeet and I knew I wanted to use them in my next collage.
The woman in the bubble is from a famous photograph by Melvin Sokolsky entitled "Bois de Boulogne", 1963. A postcard of this photo has been hanging on my art studio wall for nearly 17 years. It was time to use it.
The background is the Grand Canyon.
