Charles, I think Philip put it best, "Quirky". This photo is somehow familiar and yet mildly disturbing like a vaguely remembered wierd dream. This woman's expression is direct and somewhat amused as she aims this bulky camera at... us! She is seated in the bottom of this canoe in what can only be described as an odd position and sort of leaning forward and to the right... quite awkwardly. And there is noone else in the craft to propel or steer it. The site appears swampy and the water slicked with a seemingly oily and viscous substance out of which extend the claws of crabs or roots of some kind. Your treatment of the photo with a hand-painted effect evokes memories of the old studio colorists but the pallet is oddly, eerily pink and green and yellow. I think this creepiness to be discovered in the familiar is exactly what you wanted to present . And you have done it expertly. V

This is awesome, Charles! I often have difficulty with mixed media pieces because elements that look like they should be organic to the picture look dropped in, and vice-versa ... not so here! You've done a very good job, and the post-assemblage treatment adds just the right touch!
