First Photo Collage

I've been doing small 5"x8" for a few years now, and it's been more by intuition or intention on a subject.  This time I decided to try to create one by using a photograph and recreating it in a fashion using strips of paper.  I saw a photo that Kathleen Jennette posted awhile ago and… Continue reading First Photo Collage

Collage: Two reapers and a castle

The other day I sat down with the boxes of assorted magazine cut-outs, separated by subject (animals, people, landscapes, things) with no idea in mind.  I suspended my brain and let intuition pick the pieces.  The collage put itself together, a piece at a time.  It was too big to scan so I took a… Continue reading Collage: Two reapers and a castle

#MM — Saturday Mix — covid-19 quatrain

The world's walking on a wire Life juggling exploding balls Each hoping nobody falls Yet some will soon sing with the choir. Beneath us all there's a fire Be it hell or hell on earth That has been played with since birth Soaring death rate shows it's dire. Shall we get out of this mire?… Continue reading #MM — Saturday Mix — covid-19 quatrain

Dream collage

Last week or so ago, I started having dreams at night that seemed to be connected to each other.  In part of one, it seemed as if I was sinking into a "tunnel of numbers/equations."  I've seen graphics where a surface is made of a million little pieces that seems to fall away and dissolve,… Continue reading Dream collage

Coloring Club Plus (collage) — 10/13/19

I've made many collages with nothing in mind and let them build themselves and many where I had a specific concept in mind. Today's collage is the first one I've put together while listening to music. Mitski is my debut music collage, and I think it turned out well as far as symbolizing what her… Continue reading Coloring Club Plus (collage) — 10/13/19

OctPoWriMo2019 Day 12 — black — Prince Whom Darkness Prints

  Prince Whom Darkness Prints Globe that twists and swirls the depths of globe Needle thrusts at heaven – dark's needle. Wheedle built from Hell's dev'lish wheedle Trove of darkness cached as treasure trove Wasted hungry fish, starved, thin-waisted Needs to consume light of life; black needs Freed shadow bites eats bleeds, evil freed Tastes… Continue reading OctPoWriMo2019 Day 12 — black — Prince Whom Darkness Prints

Center stage “Here's looking at you, kid.”* See me -- I'm watching you To see you watching My blonde tentacles I want to reach you See red lust and green envy In your eyes I want you to want to be me My luscious lips fill the void In your world of pink butterflies I… Continue reading dVerse — poetic pop art — Big Hair

Collage — Big Hair

Kerfe's been encouraging me to get back to my artwork.  My primary medium is 5" x 8" paper collage.  I pulled out the magazine clippings tonight.  Usually it takes a long time to find the right images to go together, but tonight, these picked themselves.  I took a pic with the phone camera as usual,… Continue reading Collage — Big Hair
