I started making a "memory collage series" I thought it would be an interesting project. I take vintage photos and make collages out tof them. My idea is maybe offer this as an art service to people. Take their vintage or loved photos and make collages out of them
1 I was lucky enough to find a bunch of dolls at a yard sale recently. Naturally I got inspired to make some art! Ths is the result Doesn't look at all like the doll it came from! ( this is being added Sept. 28,2009.) Problem...I decided to show this piece at a recent art show and in transporting it, the "septer" got broken off and so far I have not found it. I'm so sad about this as I really liked it with the "septer".
I am involved with an assemblage project called "Inside the Box". Years ago I had made a cigar box assemblage and decided that this would be a good entry. It shows how much Hollywood influences our views! Also shows everyone's view is their own. Here is the top of the box, the inside cover and the inside.
I have been working on a project that required 5 small canvases. the project gave 5 words and one word is illustrated on each canvas. Some of the words were difficult to decide on an image! Here are the words: potter, maintain, cob, calyx ( had to look it up), and nape. Here is what I ended up making. You can try to decide which image goes with which word!
Got off on a strange kick with this three panel collage ( of sorts). If you click to enlarge, you can see the word: remind me, a house is not a home. I was rather taken with the concept of this but I am not that thrilled with how the end result turned out.
Recently I completed an altered book. I made it for a very nice gentleman who works at the art store I go to frequently. He ohh's and ah's over the work I've showed him, so I thought I would make him a little book. Since he was born in Russia, I included imgs he would be familiar with. Also included were images from two books I like: "Sacred Ground, Sacred Space: by RP Kryder and The Illuminated Rumi: illustrations by M. Green.
Some time ago I was sent a package that contained a piece of embroidery called "crewel work" that I made one winter when I had two babies under 2 years old and no TV. ( yes, there was a time when people did not have TV!) anyway, I thought I would post it. And NO WAY would I evn think about trying to do it ever again!
