I am making good progress on ATC Christmas gifts for my family. I have headed in a new direction and have started making collages using patterns, colors, partial images from magazines, catalogs, pamphlets, travel procures. This idea was inspired by a beautiful background on the cover of the Artist’s Magazine. The background was a wallpaper that had beautiful color and design. It just jumped out and grabbed me! I combined it with a small painting of a single rose, a photograph of a zebra and a strip of color from an ad for sweaters. I tried to combine manmade and natural items and wanted a quirky, almost surrealist look. I’m going for FUN! I think it turned out very well…unlike my photo.
