Introducing "Friday Collage"

Once a week, I post a digital collage on Facebook. These are created using images of ephemera, books, paper and sometimes photographs. They are good exercises in composition and creating content in art but mostly I just try and have fun. Here's a sample featuring the piece from last Friday.

It's been awhile ...

I'd almost forgot about this blog space so let's see what I can do to revive my blogging career. Let's start with highlights from recent museum visits out in L.A. where I'm proud to say I survived traversing the clogged, smogged up freeways in my quest to see some art. And it was worth the effort.
Look for more West Coast art samples in future posts.
A few sheep.

Green Paper challenge October 2012

For this month's Green Paper blog challenge, I used elements from Mary's chosen pieces to create this digital collage. I've also posted the originals so you can see what elements I chose to use, color from one to create a frame and text from the other two pieces.
And here are the challenge pieces:

I used only small portions of two of the pieces of ephemera but they were crucial to the finished collage.

September Green Paper challenge

I've produced another digital collage for Mary Green's September challenge featuring a fall school theme. It's always interesting working with imagery I might not otherwise have put together. Here, I've combined a variety of pieces from my stash to create a background for Mary's ephemera.

Green Paper Challenge

Green Paper challenge is back and here is my entry for August 2012. Its a digital collage featuring Mary's ephemera as well as some favorite elements from my file stash.

Current art projects include this piece (detail above), featuring a vintage paper ephemera collaged background, handmade papers and two bird altars. It's been one of those projects where the main elements came together quickly but its taking longer to decide what little bits need further work.


Quiet days by the lake are the essence of summer vacations. When its cold and rainy or hot and sticky, just conjure up this mental picture and relax.
