Awhile back I posted digital images I worked over along with some thoughts on over development.   Since then, I have decided to expand on the theme and construct an actual physical piece.  The Fallen pays tribute to all creatures that are victims of over development but I continued to use the image of the toad.  I choose a triple panel structure that is reminiscent of alter pieces and deliberately used a house shape as the panel format.  I repeated the use of the red outline of the toads’ bodies as I did with the digital images. If you did not see the original post with the digitally reworked images, you can see that here . If you would like to see more detailed images of the finished piece you can go to my gallery page here.

  1. I’m especially taken by the back view. The delicate vegetation reminds me of how quickly the seasons pass and the years, and individual plants live and die, but (we hope) they return the next one. I also like the format you chose.
