 Birdsong

Frances worked on a series of collages. Birdsong is one. Unfortunately photographs do not do her collages justice as some of the texture is lost.

This is better seen enlarged. Click on the image for a larger photograph.

Unfortunately, Frances is no longer with us. Thought it would be nice to keep her paintings on display as a memorial to her.
