AN APPLE A DAY, 8X8", COLLAGE, SOLD


My friend Donna, always has something new up her sleeve, so my painting group was not really surprised when she announced that we would do "collage" at one of our gatherings.  She came with tons of papers in all colors and form along with matte medium and an apple.  Half way into this, I got in the groove, came home and sacrificed two of my vintage cookbooks for recipes.

In the end, I had a great time and several ideas for my next try.  Fun, fun, fun!

Très beau collage ... bel aboutissement.
C'est étrange lorsque je vois le travail réalisé à partir de collage cela me ramène à mon enfance...
La maîtresse nous faisait coller des morceaux de notre choix sur des plaques de carton puis nous devions poursuivre en peignant selon notre inspiration... J'aimais beaucoup ça!
Gros bisous

Oh my this is fantastic! I sorta miss doing this stuff. In college, it seemed like we're always doing things like this. I need to take a day and get back to some of that creativity!

I have seen this collage technique before and I think it is really cool. I want to try to do this myself someday.
