Continuing with my mixed media artist blog series about the inspiration behind specific collage art pieces I will attempt to describe the inspiration behind my abstract collage art piece "Caravan". While the overall theme behind my mixed media collage is highways and how they mirror moments we encounter in our lives each specific collage art piece has its own meaning that I tried to capture as a mixed media artist.

The collage painting, “Caravan”, consists of a number of different sized, golden colored orbs traveling through a deep blue space. Each orb in the abstract collage is textured in its own way to reflect the wide variety of people who can inhabit these orbs. Together they all travel the same road while it winds its way through the intense trail of living and follow each other up through the space. This piece of mixed media art would seem to suggest that sharing the road with others is an expedient way to go.
