Four original photographs are framed behind glass in shadow boxes. These are, in turn, framed by the waterfall oil painting on board. I created the outer-most frame from poplar and finished it using milk paint. The shelf is carved and painted with acrylic, then suspended from the frame by branches from a Mountain laurel tree. The book, seen here on top of the frame, but normally sitting on the shelf, is comprised of hand-made paper with embedded leaves. Water color was applied during the paper-making process.

The details show the carved shelf and the open book with bookmark.
