So named because all of the clippings came from Harper's Bazaar Fall Fashion 2000 issue.

This is my first collage. The background was an experiment -- oils on photo paper -- that came out looking like an unsuccessful abstract painting. I decided I would adhere things to it rather than toss it out.

What do you think?

Thanks,
Victoria

this is excelent, i think it was a good idea not to throw this away and make it into a collage, i like the shirt..these are so much fun to make.

Thank you, colorme. The shirt is part of the original failed abstract (you can probably tell). I had so much fun doing this; can hardly wait to try another.

Nice. I really like this. Isn't it great that the stuff you labor over for day and weeks turn into overworked crap, but the impromptu bursts of creativity that take an afternoon turn out great and reaffirm your suspicions that you are an underrated genius?

Cry: So true! Ironic, isn't it? Thank you for liking it.

Vic - yes maam!

Pardon the paraphrase but I think it was Picasso who said something re out of destruction comes creation.

Hi Victoria:

I like this also! My eyes move over the work trying to put everything back in place. ha, ha.......I like paintings that let the viewer do a little work too.
Nice Work!

Best,
