12 x 12 inch canvas with a 3 1/4 inch inverted custom made wooden frame painted hues of blue. It is an acrylic on fabric with found objects mixed media piece. Completed December 2012.

This entire piece is a new experiment I did from a sketch idea drawn a year ago. The piece takes on a topographical map feel. I used packing peanuts as found objects with fabric draped on top and then painted. The frame is custom made with a little help from my husband. I wanted to create an inverted frame to give the piece an island feel. The completed frame was painted to extend the piece and become part of the final product. I enjoy how this piece has turned out and plan on doing some more experimental pieces with packing peanuts.
