A Hybrid Collage and Frozen Lettuce
This collage is digital, but was made from a scan of an actual painting done on paper, plus a scan of some sequin waste, and the curvy colored strokes were done in Illustrator. All of it was finalized in Photoshop Elements.
I’m getting addicted to working this way. The possibilities are endless.
We had what was probably our last lettuce from the garden tonight for dinner. It was kind of frozen. Last night the temps got down to 20 degrees F and I don’t think the rest of it will make it either. But the last big head of broccoli looks fine and there are several more little side shoots on the rest of the plants as well. Of course, if that ends up freezing too, I’ll just harvest it all and toss it into the freezer. Note: The lettuce bed didn’t look this pretty toward the end. We had pretty much cleaned it out already anyway. I love having lettuce almost the year around. Some day I’ll build some cold frames and keep it going.
