Steampunk Bat Queen!
Steampunk Bat Queen! 4
This is a mixed media collage on canvas using a variety of techniques, then coated in wax. I have always loved the grunge and distress of items that have aged over time, the eclectic images from our past, old bottles and clocks.

I have been collecting clocks and clock parts since I was a little girl, something so magical about the fantasy of time, something you can't stop, but something you can enjoy if you put your mind to it. Night time, allows us to dream, to cultivate our ideas and try to put them into reality when we awake in the morning time.

The Victorian Era led us down the road of fantasy and the unusual, paving the way into Art Nouveau period, adding to Sir Conan Doyle and Hoodini, where magic filled the lives of many, expecially the occult during the 1900s into the 1920's.

This piece is a result of my love for vintage, grunge, the eclectic, magic and wax!

This is a great project to do with small canvas', wood scraps or onto a box, I hope you enjoy!

Love this piece! Such fun and I think very unique. I really like your color scheme of black, creams and tans with the pop of color being the starts. I really love the texture you got on this piece. Wonderful!
