" Bridesmaid " 12x13" collage

close-up

We've all been there haven't we? Outfitted ladies to match the decor, dresses all colors of the rainbow in all imaginable fabrics? Shoes so interesting you'll probably wear them next October 31th? My homage to those wonderful days when we show our love and devotion to the bride by wearing Anything she's always dreamed of...

"She loves Parsley" 14x18" collage

This is a portrait of one of the buff Orpington hens that we raised at our home in Maine. The whole flock just loved my herb garden, partly for bugs but mostly for the parsley. They would eat some every day - yummy eggs!

"Before she was 'Mom' "11x14 collage

  This is my third figure piece in this medium and I'm hooked! I like to call it "paper painting" rather than collage. It seems to describe my pieces better because I use only colored paper from magazines, never full images or print as in most collage works. It takes a while (and Lots of magazines) to find the right skin tones but it satisfies my obsessive need for great detail and helps me relax!
