Sometimes This is the Only Way to Stay Cool

6x6 inches, paper collage

My studio is a narrow room under the eves upstairs, and in the summer it get really hot.  Really hot. That's the excuse I'm using for my not working harder on my collages and paintings lately.  I was supposed to be in Madison this morning at the figure painting studio, but I didn't have the energy to get packed and drive up there - so I decided to work at home instead. I got going before it heated up too much, and this is the result.  I found a couple gems at the local consignment shop, an old ledger from a cheese factory, and a children's book on birding.  Neither was precious, except to me as a source for paper and imagery.  I think the castle was from an old National Geographic.

These collages are just intriguing to look at, Sherry. I think I keep seeking a deep meaning in them.

You have made a wonderful painting. I think if you continue to paint I am sure that you are going to be one of the greatest painters in the future.
