Retrospective Part 5

Collage
"Geisha" - Collage - 9x12 - 2007
Since this is the final day at Mom's this is the last part of this particular Retrospective series; although it could go on much, much further. I swear, it's like being in the Kristeena Crabb Museum of Art! 

I began to dabble in collage during the summer of 2001. After creating about a dozen pieces and exhibiting them in a well received show, I went back and forth between collage and pastel until mid 2004 when I took up collage exclusively. In fact, I no longer even own any soft pastels.

Both of these are fabulous! I like the gold in the tree trunks and I especially love the umbrellas! Wonderful idea and so well executed. Fantabulous!
Happy Creating.

Thanks, Nora. I love the challenge of creating images from paper.
