My 8 x 8's

 Dragged me away
8 x 8 collage on watercolor paper, sheet music, old book pages, painted drawing papers and acrylic glazing. To my surprise I was asked if I wanted to sell this piece..I said yes and ask that I take it home and properly seal it and remount it on another piece of watercolor paper.
 My Star,
8 x 8 collage on watercolor paper, sanded magazine page, gessoed map, and gessoed kraft papers with acrylic glazing, Nevr dull magazine paper with the star stencil and a bit of acrylics splashed here and there.

She Settles, Inukshuk series.
Every week when we coming into class at LaGrange Art League I have the students jump right in to working on a piece...they have 30 minutes about to finish one...I also have them do 5 collage sketches in their sketchbooks.  It's such a delight to see the pieces created and they seem to be enjoy the process of the exercise. The piece above was created from a image using a view finder and the image I took it from was upside down. I'm toying with the composition with this is about rock formations stacked.  And I love this simple theme of shape and form...I would like to continue this series...

Off to get the good weekend started with walking my four legged loves... 


  1. These are REALLY NICE Laura! I can see how that first one sold so darned fast!
    Anxious to see where these progress... :-)
