Meaning behind the art:
This collage was created in a demonstration done over the past weekend at my Outdoor Studio Exhibit and I often enjoy the challenge to create with just a few piece of collage paper materials and with wording in the piece which some of it is Ukrainian it was about a collage retreat and the other words in the old book page was reactions so it came to me for the title, React or Retreat.. which also means to act or hold back.. which is so fitting as I how I'm feeling about life these days...as to act on some things and hold back on other...Serendipity is really what it's called when one makes those wild connections from some where else and wonders.
