This mural is made out of magazine pieces glued to cardboard. The mural grew out of the need I had at my last rental, to decorate a really big wall without wanting to spend a large amount of money to decorate when renting. I had helped out at a summer camp where we had decorated frames with magazine strips. So that technique grew into an idea of a mural of mountains with the sun rising over them (because what can be more beautiful?) My roommate at the time has an Art Studio degree. So she had the idea for the staggered posters. Also, she drew out with pencil the design and told me were to shade with the colors. I then cut pieces of magazine and glued them on with rubber cement.
Even closer, I like it that some of the pictures are of trees!
There is hair, and bread, and nuts in the mountain!
Since this is made on poster board, it is not very durable for moving. If anyone has ideas for how I can preserve this, I would appreciate it.
