My Collage Work

Tired of this? I always think we talk the most about what is happening right now and is impressive to our everyday. When we listen to people often it is more than small talk it is really right there with them and important. I don't know how important my collage is, but it takes my mind and keeps it occupied with artful thoughts. If you to to "All Nora's Art" You will see the blog with the sites I visit you can see what other artists are doing, all different but the same technique.

November, much appreciated

It has been a beautiful month. Not much to say except....the woman with her hand on her chine dreaming or thinking, it is a simple glass plate in blue/green colors.
The photo turned just this way, not additions no altering. How many photos does one have to take to get something like this? A lot. I guess tis time no altering, just the stuff right out of the camera.

Class Work

so I was wondering...if you learn something through instruction, and then you try what you learned....did you really learn it? yes, the hand has a mind of it's own.

Collage, Do You Love It?

I do I love arranging things, seeing different things together and how they work well and please the eye. Builders, decorators, landscapers, quilters, advertising, all like this something that gives the eye a sense of pleasure.
If you scroll down a bit you see a class with Sharon Tomlinson on the right is a button to click and go see for yourself what you might like.

This painting is a mix ,a lot of collaged papers but my drawing and painting of a face, of course there is a story here and I won't tell it because your story might be better.

November Bits

This is just that bits, I do some journal work without much writing or sometimes I write later on that page and these faces are because of LynneHoppe she has a great tutorial on how. Her work has such charm, and it always gives me feelings or years gone and people known, that sounds sad, it isn't.

Right now it is get ready for Sharon Tomlinson's class and to the right and down a bit you will see the button to click and find out more. a gathering of bits for the Faces in Collage. Let's not forget the sorting I did of papers and getting the art table cleaned up for a less cluttered work space.

One photo I post here today will make you sort of dizzy and I hate that, but I like the photo despite it's lacking. There are two other things I will post, I can't remember what they are, but, I will see them in the Nov. file. I see now by the file it is frost decorating the landscape, lingering frost of mid morning.

November Daze

A lot going on these early days of November, but today was fun Angie, my daughter is here and we painted a little she did I finished a painting, and fell asleep on the couch watching an old Bonanza, then an old Big Valley. The paintings are fun and rather different, Angie's is the one with the bouquet and the woman tending it.

You know we don't have a dog now and we have this new little cat that I may Call "Vera" when this little cat meows it is "WAAng" and sort of scratchy sounding
That is a long A in WAAng> One other thought, and I knew this, two cats don't make a dog.
