Spirit of collage

A beautiful sunny spring day seemed like the perfect time to try out a new idea for intuitive collage. Starting by selecting an image of one's self, making it as large as A4 in size. Mine was taken from a photo booth photo some 30 odd years ago. A few wrinkles have set in since !.... then to finding magazine images to work with and enhance the inner goddess ! It was to be an intuitive day of experimentation mixing collage with paint.

The long narrow 'canvas' was a challenge.

The sun soon became too hot to work outside. the paint was drying too quickly.

Mirror mirror on the wall,  read what you will into the caged creature, the door way to where ? and the Carmen Miranda head gear !

A fun day with Petra. I will put up her finished piece soon.
