I began this collage about a year ago. Whenever, I wanted to play at art instead of make art, I would work on this piece. I might cut out images that caught my interest or arrange - and rearrange - the paper/cloth ephemera on the stretched canvas.
Today, I decided to finally paste the pieces onto the canvas. After I completed that task, I decided that the collage needed more embellishment. I laid the canvas aside to let it simmer for a while - and to let new ideas bubble up for my next play at art. I wonder....Do you ever do this with your art?
Houses and hearts seem to play a big part in my art. When I see other mixed-media artist's work, I often see hearts and houses incorporated into their work. I think that when one creates art, the work comes from the heart and the soul...our nest...our home.
