Addicted to Collage
Seriously, collage is becoming an addiction for me. It’s a medium that fits in nicely with my other work in the studio, and sometimes even inspires my larger paintings. I enjoy the fact that I can mix photographic elements and hand-painted and drawn passages in the same work of art. I can work on them while waiting for the paint and mediums to dry on my large panels, because there are times when all I can do is wait. It’s a wonderful way to keep creating.
This is a continuation of the Passageways Series. My criteria are that the formats are all 5 x 7 inches, all the colors are earth colors in a limited palette, and the imagery is abstract.

There is something therapeutic about sorting through choices of shapes and textures to create a composition. If I were a poet, I might love doing the same thing with words.
