i forgot that i had this one hanging on the wall in my studio/office.
i completed this while listening to Joanie Mitchell's muzac and crying a bit here and there. when i do a piece of work, it seems to be a process piece dealing with something that is shifting in my soul or an art piece. this is one that bridges both places, i hope.
i used napkins, transfers from mags, copies of fine art, and vellum papers for this one. i also did some shading with pigment ink pads. this was the first time that i painted beneath the napkins to shade etc. oh and the base of the whole thing that peaks through here and there is one of my faves, spray paint.

Wow, I really love all of the colours you put into this... it's really soothing and comforting to look at. Did you know that Joni Mitchell went to art school? It's true! :)

joanie is also a great artist, in fact some say that is her true gift, but oh i love her voice so much i find that hard to believe. thanks for the remarks, i was beginning to think that it was not going to generate any. my husband likes it because it is so hopeful, something we all need a bit of right now and all the time.

This is gorgeous, Rennie.. I adore collage work -- should get back to doing some more. Now, collages are dream images if anything is! Love this a lot.

Just found your collage! I love it...the color, the imagery...all work together. I'd say its a very personal statement...but I identify with it, too.

I have always found collages and mandalas to be personal and healing for the artist. This piece is very softly spoken, but leaves a lasting impression. Your color and subject choices work well together. I haven't done a collage in a long time. This has sparked my interest:) Thank you for sharing.

Do you have this book? You don't need it but I know you would enjoy it! :)

The Art of Paper Collage by Susan Pickering Rothamel


Your piece would fit right in that book - very professional!
