A Sanity Break
August 25, 2011
Late this afternoon I stopped what I was working on with my digital art projects and walked into the studio for a brief sanity break. It was good to run my fingers through the stacks of weathered and painted papers. Tomorrow I want to show some scans of examples of some of my favorite papers that I came across. I look through them and they make me smile.
This collage fits right in with the ones I’ve been doing, but with an added twist. I came across a collection of little bits of collage glued to the backs of glass squares. I had created them to be used as pendants or refrigerator magnets and they are sitting in a little drawer in my studio, doing nothing for anyone. So on a whim I glued one of them to this collage. I don’t know if you can tell what the imagery is, but it’s a snippet of leaves and branches. I hadn’t really thought of them as possible additions to collage, but I think it works.
