The Limit of Art Cannot Be Attained

This tiny collage (5 x 7) began with this study; with the bird. I recently purchased a book on hieroglyphics in a used book store and found these profound statements on various pages that made a perfect poem for me. "The sun rises in the sky; The limit of art cannot be attained; I have spoken the truth."

The following parts were scanned into my computer:
A paper cut our bird of my own creation

A blank musical staff

A hydrangea bush my backyard on Woodrose Lane.

The following hieroglyphs were scanned as well.
The limit of art cannot be attained.

The sun rises in the sky.

I have spoken the truth.
I used GIMP (Gnu Image Manipulation Program) to create PNG images of the all of the images save the music staff page. Then I used Powerpoint to place the images and insert the test. This is because it is easier for me to insert text in Powerpoint than in GIMP. 

The limit of art cannot be attained.
