Archive for the ‘Collage’ Category

A mail art friend sent twenty of us copies of a glowing red collage she made of radish seed packets. She gave no instructions, so I decided that she probably wanted us to embellish it and pass it on. Just the kind of thing I love to do.

The original had no title. I call my version “You Can’t Have Too Many Radishes or Amaryllis or Ethnic Beads.”

All kinds of mark-making plus more collage.

I Cleaned My Desktop

When I finished, there were still a few tiny scraps left in the workspace. So I made something with them.

Or try it this way, right side up.

Finally

“Finally” what? Finally got out of the heat and humidity of North Carolina to the cool of NH. Finally used the placemat I saved from Lou’s memorable eatery. Of course, nothing’s necessarily final about collage.

It’s dorky, I like it.

I miss my scanner. iPad camera is a poor substitute.

On Vacation

Vacation, time to try new things and revisit old frustrations, such as Flickr. I’ve been locked out of my account for a long time because of user name/login/password tangles. You didn’t need to know that.

Today I got back in and revisited an old collage book called Fine Spirits. It’s all red and white. A page:

I have several ideas for final steps, and I am worried about spoiling it, which can happen, even though a person shouldn’t think that way. So to calm my fears, I’ll post this near-final version of “She Asked My Advice.”

When the final version is ready, I’ll post it and also identify the fellow artist who sent me the material in the left border.

Original is about 9 by 11 inches, my big visual journal.

Wow [surprised as usual by the passage of time and the amount of stuff I’ve created since about 2001.]

About 8 years ago, I retrieved a Jiffylite padded envelope from the trash at the university History Department where I worked. I made a large mixed media artwork on this recycled canvas sometime later.

It has an outsized presence — it’s 15 x 22 inches and very colorful — so there’s never been “the right place” to hang it, and it’s also a bear to store.

Today I scanned it in parts and e-stitched it together, using a few digital tools to disguise some of the joins. I still like it a lot and don’t want to look at it all the time, which you’ll understand if you enlarge the image.

That’s a frilly blue cocktail pick in my guru’s hand. I doubt I’ll ever make anything quite like this again.
