The title just seemed to work, all 3 words appear on the page but you have to look closely for Prince Cherry. The page comes from a book of old children's stories given to me by Brett. Collage: acrylic glaze, marker, color pencil.
More whimsey, it hints at a story but my plotting ability is nil so it's more like visual haiku. Gwen gave me a whole roll of old tickets and they're jumping into the work. Collage, ink, marker and some colored pencil.
In between finishing up the preceding post's work (#4 out of 6), things moved around on my table until their urge to be together couldn't be ignored. Hence, Miss Maple again. Collage, acrylic paint, marker, color pencil and samaras (maple seeds). I only know the fancy name because I use the things so often (and because I'm a total geek about words), they remind me of wings, which they are, sort of.
These look like guests at a wedding or a confirmation.....but that really didn't occur to me until I saw this on the page, scale is everything apparently. Speaking of which, if I can, I want to do one of these large scale, at least 30x60 inches. The trick will be keeping my focus, it is by no accident that I work small. This is about 24x13 inches.
The substrate is an 18x12 card with all kinds of TV (circa late 50s) stuff going on and the rest are graphics and words cut from Popular Mechanics. I have the original benday dot cards from my junior high library but I'm clueless how any class could use large photos of Lucille Ball or the Father Knows Best cast. In any case I've got 15 of them and this is the first to go into art.
The pattern was one part of the work and the other was the tattered state of the materials. I incorporated both concepts into this collage. This is part of Katherine's package now and I hope it fits her emphasis on the Japanese concept of "boro".
