The camp host down the road was really nice to me when I was sick. She hooked me up with echinacea and zinc tablets and even gave me lemongrass soap (in the shape of a peace sign!) that she’d made. I’ve been meaning to do something nice for her in thanks.
She’s a deadhead too, so I wanted to make something Grateful Dead related for her. I decided on a collage with the quote I really love from “Scarlet Begonias.”
The turtle is metal, sent to me by my friend in New England. He’s been sending me little trinkets all summer, and I’m working some of them into my art. The turtle was the camp host’s favorite part! I like how it makes this collage truly mixed media.
