Layers Upon Layers Upon Layers

This week, with we had to create a piece using multiple layers, and being a photo major–that isn’t too terribly difficult. I love photoshop even though graphic design and collage isn’t my thing. I was inspired by paintings of the Madonna–or Virgin–and Baby Jesus. It’s fascinating how many similar paintings were created of her–gold leaf and saints galore!

I decided to put the paintings on a wall as if they were hung in a gallery. Rather than leaving them completely horizontal I chose to create a sort of star shaping–giving the viewer a glance of the Virgin at different angles.
