Small Collage

“Through the Window” – Collage, 4 x 4″

Here’s another collage with handmade papers, painted papers, Japanese papers, and Asian joss paper.

We were still working right up to nine o’clock this morning for the house showing that was to happen at ten, only to get word at the last minute that the people weren’t coming today. So we stopped working and decided to just enjoy the surroundings for the rest of the day.

The house looks great inside and out, except for my kitchen, which right now is strewn with paints and panels. I’ve been painting in the kitchen so that we could watch the congressional committee hearing on the AIG mess. We do live in interesting times.

      Amanda, I love papermaking. It must be the cleanest art process there is! I would love seeing your first graders in action! Thanks for coming by and for sharing.

    Wonderful combination of papers and textures! Collage really gives you that built-in ability to introduce texture, since you inherit the texture of whatever you paste on. If anything, it’s probably more of a challenge to harmonize these competing surface qualities.

    Good luck with the house – you sound wonderfully philosophical about your folks now showing up after all the work you must have put in to get ready!

    My daily “fix” has just arrived – love this one. Really timely to see a collage made with various papers as we have to do that next week in our class. All fingers crossed for the house sale.

I love getting your comments, so please don't be shy! Your feedback is valued.
