The signs on the wall ....


    Not a shadow of a doubt this couple had on their honeymoon travels, but we already saw some    shadow boxing ....

Theme: DANGER!

I don't seem to remember this one...anyway interpret DANGER! in collage form.

Think: threat, hazard, peril, fear, menace, risk, jeopardy or ???

reaching for the void


Hand from a painting by Jean-Michel Basquiat. Dog from a painting by Geoffrey Martin.

I find myself drifting in the direction of just abstract or semi-abstract collages. So my challenge each week will be to acknowledge the theme in that form.

An Old Coot & His Critters

Specifically a Ringtail (or Miner's Cat), a Goodfellow's Tree Kangaroo, a Ring-Tailed Lemur, a Banded Palm Civit and a Margay. Oh, what do the neighbors think?

des chats


Mordant tale of cat who eats rat poison from A. B. Frost's "The Fatal Mistake" (1894). Big cat with red collar by Paul Davis (1975). Encounter of brick and black cat from George Herriman's "Krazy Kat." White arm and white cat from FĂ©lix Edouard Vallotton's "La Paresse" (1896). Black-&-white cat with man's brown trousers and shoes by Norman Rockwell.

I apologize for being so erratic in my participation in this wonderful blog. My health has not been good. But please don't worry about me. I don't have a dire illness or anything critical,  and I'm still very committed to making collages. It's my legs: I can walk, a little bit, with a cane,  but it's a painful endeavour. On the days when I can't walk at all, I can't get to my studio, and when I'm in lot of pain, I can't concentrate well enough to make art. It's as simple as that.

"They're Watching"


Another tricollage just recently made ... started by me, continued by Sabine and finished by Lynn.
I think the pet has a special role in this story .. I wonder what happens if someone whistles ;))
