Gather Ye Rose Buds
A collage on canvas board; scrapbook paper, 2 vintage postcards, a brass stamping hand. Scraps of polka-dot ribbon anchor a carte de visite of an alert youngster of the late 19th century. Drips and splatters of acrylic in pale pink and green and the strip of fabric flower trim that gives the piece its name are the finishing touches. Available at this autumn's Open Studios tour.
