Art: Flower and Pheasant by Artist Jaye Owens
"Ripped Off" from Diana Mae Potts' "Gemlike Flower I" and "Tiny Golden Pheasant" drawings. (Also fondly known as "Hearing Impaired Bird With Ear Trumpet" or "Bird and Horse") I chose these two tiny drawings of Diana's mostly because I was drawn to the gorgeous colors and felt that I could bring out those colors in my piece as well. I also liked the tiny format, since it lends the drawings just enough detail to get the beauty across without using a billion tiny details that I could never hope to render in magazine bits. The mosaic is created with 1/2" squares of magazine pages decoupaged onto a canvas panel. I created the layout for the piece in Photoshop Elements, cutting and pasting the characters from the originals into one big image. Then I used the grid feature in Elements to divide the plan into all the individual squares so that I could sift through my stash of paper bits to find the ones that most closely approximated what the image was "supposed" to look like in each square.
