Cool Coast

Mixed media collage paying homage to the wonderful COOL COAST mural on Austin Street, in the Rockport, Texas, Heritage District.

This collage on a wrapped canvas is ready to hang. Corrugated (one of my favorite textures!), watercolor, pencil, acrylic, paper and cardstock surround the main image, which is an actual photo that I took and applied artistic filters to. The photo is of an old mural of a very large fish – 17 feet long, 6 feet wide, and 2000 pounds! I’ve been told it’s a sawfish, but I don’t know when it was caught, but it is a charming piece of nostalgia in the equally charming town of Rockport.
