Daily Collages




These daily collages are so similar that I decided to show them all in one post. For 2 days I was busy painting the upstairs bath and didn't get any work done in the studio. So, after I made the first morning's collage, I left all the papers, etc. on my work table. Each of the next two mornings, I worked with the same basic materials. So all 3 collages have a very similar feel. I do think they got better as the days progressed, even though my supplies were running out more and more. Interesting phenomenon. (I also create some of my best work when I have a deadline looming.)

P.S. Thanks for all of the comments on my self portrait collage. I am going to add a little bit of screened text and call it good. Although I may make another one in color later on.

I am really liking the photos in these collages, and the way you integrated them into the collages. Did you tear these or are the stripes painted?

I like the feel of these pieces. The white gives them a very linear feel which is complimentary. I like being able to take a few scraps and make art with them. Nice.
