Another recently finished collage - I feel like I have been working like a madman madwoman!
This is another collage built on a flat canvas. I used a reproduction advertisement, a vintage, original letter, decorative paper and paint. I love the crazy assortment of letters - maybe too much, because I have used them several times. I used scrap wood (notice the holes) to build a box behind the canvas. I am trying to pay attention to the details - by carrying my collage around the edges. In this case I used paint and then free-hand painted the pattern from the paper on the front. I am not a painter, and this was a challenge for me. But, I guess, I am trying to challenge myself. I want to improve my compositions and my technique. I want to find my groove as a collage artist.
The quotation is one that resonates with me:
A friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same.
That's the type of friend I want to be - and the type of friends that I am fortunate enough to have in my life.
