Music Collages

Muse ©St. Hilaire Nelson
Here is another wildly cropped violin I did for the Music show. This is 10x22. I bought three panels this size and decided to do something different than my typical 20x24. I decided to use oranges for the top of the violin. Violins actually come in many different colors. The violin I played as a child was very brown, the one I play currently is much more of a golden orange. I also enjoyed infusing a little purple with the orange in here. The drippy background is fluid acrylic over clear primed wood panel.

Again, sorry for the lousy photo. I will replace with a better one, so check back soon.


  1. This is beautiful - it's going to be a great show. I can't wait.

  2. Another iPhone 'shot in the dark' but I can see your collages are as wonderful as ever. Wish I could see them at the Music Show!

  3. Yes, ha ha "shot in the dark" terrible, I have to get some better photos. but thanks, I really like the way it came out too.


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