A little summary of the path I took with this assignment... I needed to present 6-8 collages this coming Tuesday for a possible job(my working hang in their building), so I worked on making a few hundred different kinds of papers...well not that many but it sure feels like it...some how I think I need to make more...the obsession has set in...look out.  It sure is great to just pull from my stacks and hanging paper all coated and ready to go...I share with my students that I do...use a sketch book from time to time but not like you would think...drawing?   no I sit with a few good colorful magazines, glue stick and scissors and off I go. I'm showing you my sketches in my collage sketch book...I like the colors in them but not sure if the possible customer will like it.. well off to tackle clean up detail on of the studio and tend to the homestead and gear for classes that have to be taught this week...

  1. Nice work, I particularly like Last Month as it has a lot of depth.

    Kisses to Hank, too, makes me miss my lab...

  2. Thanks Rebecca, I'm not sure which is my favorite out of them...as I say to my students the one I like best is the one I'm working at the time...so right now I'm not working on anythings but some homestead bills so can't wait to jump into again towards the end of the week.

    and as for missing the lab..my second oldest daughter was prepare a portfolio and cleaning out old pictures she had in it and ask if I wanted a photo she did of our choc. lab louie...(tears welling up now just thinking of him) Oh our loyal companions...love them dearly.
