ACEO...The Weeping Man

This is an art card using digital collage elements from the Haeckel images, DaVinci drawings, Galileo drawings and my own photograph and elements.
Size is 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
The base photograph is of an old tobacco barn way past it's prime and covered in Kudzu vines and moss. This photo was over saturated to get the intense colors. There was an evening sun and reflection on my lens that I softened and accented to get the surreal glow.
There are approximately four layers using different vintage elements. I have used different degrees of transparency brushes on each to achieve the proper effect.
After each card is printed I add touches of micro glitter in various places to make each trading card a one of a kind. I sign and date the cards on the back and send them in a cellophane sleeve for protection.

This is for sale with others in my Etsy shop:) Shameless promotion I know...but if you don't promote your self...who will?:)
