Getting Ready

I've been making some smaller collages for my booth at our local Art in the Park on Sept 12th. These are 6"x6" and 8"x6". The two deeper 6"x6"x2.5" pieces have imagery on the front, edges AND the back! I'm not going to put hangers on the back as they're kinda fun just sitting on a table so you can pick them up, turn them around and over.

Glorious Morning

This piece is 12x12x3 and uses a copy of one of the vintage postcards of Morning Glory Pool in Yellowstone alongside part of a photo I took of said pool and drawings I did on ledger paper. I've been using old ledger paper in collages for over a year, so I was thrilled to find some notecards in Bozeman of a native American's ink drawings on ledger paper from the early 1900s (drawn over the top of writing due to lack of paper!). That gave me the idea to do drawings on the paper I had – and have another subtle Montana connection in the piece.
