Well I’m not going to California but I was encouraged to use the song Going to California by Led Zeppelin as part of my 100 day project..
The song was a recommendation by a fellow Instagram connection. I was inspired by the music and soulful lyrics so I decided to illustrate it.. Thankful for the special song request and the curiosity to give it a try, because this art became one of my favorites on my 100 day journey.
Mixed media artwork: The figure created with watercolor, pencil, cut paper, (map of California) layered on top of a 5×7″ chip board with acrylic paint

Love this!! ❤️ Maps are awesome to use in collage! I always look for them when I am at a thrift store. They make excellent prints with a gelli-plate too if you like to do that kind of art. 😃
Thank you Jill.. Only the second time using maps in a collage, it is fun to use.. I do love to see how other artists incorporate maps in their work.
I am glad you told me it was a map of California as I was tilting my head and trying to read the text!
I was thinking ahead 😆👍🏻
Beautiful art and mixed media. “California Here I Come” another great song.
Thanks Sharon 😊 I’ll have to give it a listen
Nice interpretation of a classic song that was part of my childhood.
Thank you very much Eric, glad to bring back the memories for you!
