Latest collage: "A Touch of Red"

You may be wondering, "Sheesh. Doesn't she do photography any more?" It's sort of taken a back seat to collage work, hasn't it? But I'm not as good at making collages as I am at photography, so I'm working steadily, day by day, beginning at 8 a.m., on making collages. My goal is to create 50 of these little things, 4.75" x 4.75" and maybe at the end of that project I will be much better, much faster, more creative, and a lot looser than I am now. We shall see.

In the meantime, I have indeed been photographing, but the results haven't been charming me lately. Once the winds here on the coast subside a bit, I'm going to work on a project I have in mind. The weather's been good (which means it's not raining!), but I can't really have a lot of wind for what I'm wanting to shoot.

Apropos of nothing, Fine Art America sold three of my photos today, to three different people, which is great. Just yesterday I was grousing that FAA hadn't sold any of my stuff in the past week and then boom! A good day today. Maybe I should grouse more often . . .

This collage was made using some of my hand-painted papers, some ink-painted Japanese paper, and a little touch of red decorative paper.
