The Art of Jen Goldie manifested with paper collage

Jen Goldie is an artist of many talents.  She has a unique style with her art that I have appreciated for a long time.  Once, when looking at a creation of hers that I particularly liked, I wondered if I could reproduce a reasonable facsimile of it using what I know about collage.  It’s taken me some time to get it together, but it’s finally complete.  First is Jen’s image, used with permission to try to recreate it:

Here is my attempted reproduction using acrylic paint and collage techniques:

As you can see, it is not identical, but it’s pretty close.

Thank you, Jen, for allowing me to have a challenging, but enjoyable, experience in choosing to try to recreate your design with paper collage.

          I’m working on another one right now with some of the leftover circles and some acrylic paint. We’ll see if I make it look good or go overboard like I usually do.
