From Every Direction – Collage, 5×7″
This collage is made up of parts of a Gelli print, found papers, and hand painted papers. The title is appropriate to what I feel like right now — pulled from every direction. But how much nicer than getting no attention at all, right? Our dance card has been full for the past week — lots more activity through the house than I’m accustomed to. A small crew of handymen putting up new lighting and blinds for 2 days, a weekly (and the final) phone bank for President Obama here on Monday evening, and two extended family dinners back to back (couldn’t get their schedules together so they could all be here at once.)
And of course there was voting and then Election Night on TV. I couldn’t help myself — just had to watch until very late last night. I felt good that many of the most extreme candidates were shown the exit door. Another thing that pleases me to no end is that the people have spoken loud and clear, and sent the message that our elections are not for sale.
The collage work continues, and I have the urge to get out the gelli plate again. I’ll report my progress to you.
