"Shale"

47.50

This collage went through SO many edits. The more I worked it, the more separate the pieces became and the edges ragged which is normally not what I'm trying to achieve. I finally decided to leave it at the point where it looks like layers of Earth. Here in my home state if you walk in the woods, there are craggy shelves of shale. They have so many angular jags and juts, so much character from watershed and erosion – nature edits the land like I worked the pieces of this collage, over and over again until new forms emerge.
