Blueberry Branch–Complete!

Blueberry Branch
24x20, collage on panel

I took advantage of Judith Segall's hand-made papers for the blueberries! Her papers have such amazing texture and color variation, I could not think of any better way to make the blueberries come forward and stand out. I used four different shades of blues, some with white specs and some with glitter. I love this paper! This is the same paper I typically use on the noses of my cows, to give them texture and character and to make them come forward in the composition.

Let me know what you think!


  1. You never cease to amaze me. Absolutely beautiful! It has a very 3-D effect in addition to the masterful use of design and color.

  2. the 3-D is something that Judy, my paper maker, also commented to me in a direct email. Maybe she is too shy to comment on the blog! LOL She said my work was looking thicker in texture, and I told her that it was probably because the berries are totally made from her papers, which are much thicker.

  3. The paper thickness sure does add a very special 3D quality to it. Just looks like you could pluck the blueberries right off the panel. Wonderful!

  4. Gorgeous! And it makes me SO hungry for blueberry pie.


thank you for taking the time to read and comment! :)
