Our friend in Montana had three pieces of my art on her dining room wall, but realized it wasn't "holding the wall" and asked if a 24" x 24" collage of mine was still available. We arranged for her to pick it up when in Illinois this October... and then I emailed her several panoramas I'd taken while visiting her in Montana this summer. She asked if I could make a 70" wide panorama to hang above the other four pieces of art! It certainly was the largest piece I've ever made, so I was very happy that she was able to drive both pieces home with her. She sent a photo today of the end of her dining room; my 5 pieces hang on the wall and my husband's metal mountains and Italian alabaster sculpture grace the cabinet below. Love it!

In Week 3 of my collage class, we found imagery and printed it on tracing paper. This week's assignment was to make layered collages using the tracing paper imagery as the 2nd of several layers. These are all 4" x 5".

I left some notecards with my collage imagery printed on them at The Danforth Gallery in Livingston, Montana, in July. They've sold a couple of the cards, and I finally had some time to make a couple of small collages to send out for their gift shop. These are both 8"x 8" and are Montana scenes.

I just started an online class with Randel Plowman (author of "Masters: Collage" and "The Collage Workbook"). The first assignment was to make a number of 3" x 5" sheets of heavy watercolor paper, gather imagery, set a timer, and make several collages - each in 5 minutes or less. What a fun assignment!
