Daily Collage

1/1/09
4.5"h x 4"w

Last year I made a small collage (2.5" x 4.5") every morning in a little book. This was my warm-up exercise when I first entered the studio. This year I decided to expand this concept and make a little bit bigger collage each day using watercolor paper as a backing. I also changed from a horizontal to a vertical orientation.

The photo above is my daily collage from January 1st. I included the doorway on the left as a symbol of "choice", choosing to go through the door or to ignore it. I also added some notes on my focus for the coming year.

I like the 3 background papers and of course the reminder that we can choose. Nice colors too.
