Well...here is my experiment number 1. The flag was fun to do. "America in Collage" is a 7x5" collage on clay board. It is available on my website. Just click on the title to take you there! Using collage, and some of my painterly effects I found this to be a good example for me. I COULD have just painted it. That would have been MUCH faster...but I might not have gotten such definition. You may not be able to see it but the depth the tiny extra bit of paper gave it helped I believe.
I taught today...took my Sunflower Quad challenge with me...got some done, but not enough to post. It is a busy school...and I'm back there tomorrow, but I'm thinking hard as I work this collage...mixing it with the painting parts as well...As I was working it I realized I like the loose look of my paintings, so I was considering how I could incorporate that into this collage. We shall see...
I got an e-mail from a friend of mine who was wondering if I am going to give up just painting all together...I don't think so! I love it...but if I play with things I might just make a recognizable situation with both...hmmm...part of my questioning process...
I'm a bit tired, so I'll talk about other questions at a later date...but, for now...I had fun, and am in process of answering my first question for myself.
YIPEE...we hit 75 followers. I will draw a name this evening and post the result tomorrow when I return from school!
