A Collage Try

I've been accumulating books about collage, which has really been interesting me. So, today, after working, I went in my studio and flung paint around and had a great time. Now, I think the result is strictly amateur, but at least I gave it a try. I' m not giving up! In between my other projects, I am going to hone my collage skills. I think it's a great avenue for expression. In case you can't read the embossed letters, they say, 'into the night'.

Deborah: What a gift to give yourself; the ability to play and experiment! I enjoy your portrait work, and look forward to seeing more collages.

Deborah,

I've always had a soft spot in my heart for collage and seeing you experiment with the medium reignites that inspirational flame. There is something about collage that is so off the beaten path -different from all the other art genres. Keep it up! You have lots of personal style.

Beautiful colors,teal color one of my favorites, beautiful texture. I basically am a watercolorist or was but now feel that collage brings out my more playful spirit. This is a very dreamy piece with its fiber strings all around. Didn't see the owl at first, now his glowing eyes are magnificant! A mysterious piece, would love to see more!I think using different mediums taps into different parts of us, all waiting to be expressed.
