Collage

Well here they are, in order of creation. While these appear to be quite a departure from my current work they actually go back to where I began. I always thought that what I did was "too cute" or "whimsical" and wouldn't be taken seriously. After all, I was trained as a "fine artist". I have always loved text, pattern and texture but as my painting got better and more refined those elements began to go out the window. Well it's back and I plan on doing more collage. The one on the far right is my favorite and the direction I plan on taking when time permits.

Of course I will still illustrate the way I have been illustrating but it will be interesting to see how making these collages will start to influence my current work.
To my friends "cute" and "whimsical", clear your schedules, we'll be spending more time together
