I couldn't have done this one without the cats....

Three of the seven photos used in this collage appear in Magic Lens. One that wasn't, a shot of collected, shed cat fur from Daisy and Red (I use the fur in mixed media pieces), serves as backdrop for the blossoms and filaments. Other pictures not previously posted include yellow wildflowers found on a grassy median, and our white portulaca on the back porch. The filaments come chiefly from the lefthand Spanish moss, while the frame uses the righthand shot.

The yellow flowers blend two color alterations. Darkening the original shot had made the seed pods almost black -- so I lightened them in a second copy and replaced just the pod tops in the collage.
