I am ready to get into the Fall swing of things. My kind sweet husband removed the air conditioner from the studio yesterday so I have a little more LIGHT there! Light is good.
and when the NY Times Magazine came and it was the men's fashion issue, I did what I do when I see nice paper - I tore it right up! I don't need the slick images of skinny men in fancy clothes, but I love the colors and textures of the paper, and find it makes great collages.
I love using what is meant as ads for the culture of materialism and making them into images about something lovely, natural, expressive, and personal.
The next few days are pages in my journal using those papers as background, see what you think:
(and yes, that is Javier Bardem peeking out from behind my collage, because that man is a God!)
