New Piece: The Castle

The Castle (El Castillo)

Completed October 7, 2009
35.5 X 47 inches (90 X 120 cm)
Mixed media on wood (old Mallorquin newspaper, acrylic, graphite, ink)

The title of this piece comes from the drawing in the background created by my daughter about a year ago. Lately pretty much every piece I make either has some drawing of hers or found objects collected by her incorporated into it. The composition of rooms and open door is from a destroyed building in Palma de Mallorca. The text is from a moving story written by my yoga student, Victoria.

here's a detail of the castle drawing...
