These collages are created with as little thought as possible regarding their outcome. It’s just play, hoping that one happy thing will lead to another, and another. The unhappy part is still cutting and tearing into the larger pieces of paper to arrange them into some kind of composition. I save every single tiny scrap for future use.
I just have to reassure myself that more papers can be made that will be just as much fun as these.
I have to wonder what a complete stranger would think if they were to go through my studio with all its odd little bits of “stuff.” Would they think some crazy person lived here? I hope so.
