So, we went to Walmart looking for some paint. As we came out of the store, I noticed what I thought was a glass lens on the ground - all scratched up - I said, HMMMMMMM, I could maybe use that for a collage.
But I past it by, then a few steps later, there were the lensless glass frames all pink and sparkly with only one ear piece smashed to a flatness that was perfect for mounting on a canvas.
So I picked up the wonky frames and went back and picked up the lens. A few more… Continue

here is a collage I completed the other day. Come to think of it, it's been a long while since I've done one of these also.

Hi everyone! This is my first blog...had no intention of doing this but I wanted to share some new discoveries I made the other day after working on some encaustics. First let me say that I hate to throw away or waste anything that can be used on an art project. I'm sure I'm not the only one who does this! So what to do with the wax on my hot plate. I didn't want to use any of my expensive paper to experiment so I grabbed my freezer paper, which has wax on one side, so that'll work. While… Continue

Recently, I did three mixed media collages, using pages from an old English dictionary.
This is the first time I've used dictionary pages in artworks, and I must say, I love it! In the past, I have hand-written word deffinitions into collages, but being able to rip-and-snip right from the book was a fun and fascinating process.
I chose some… Continue

Now that I have an idea of what the insurance company is going to give me for my art supplies, I've tried to take stock of myself as an artist. I had, of course, over the years accumulated an enormous amount of art and craft supplies as I moved from medium to medium. My journey eventually led me to the world of mixed media and assemblage. Once there, however, I have found myself gravitating to more specific types of assemblages and collage. I now have a unique opportunity to… Continue

While looking at some of the collages that I did last autumn, I got the itch to make something new... something more personal... something antique...
I started looking though my family photo albums, and I kept coming back to this same deep sepia portrait of my grandfather's parents. I think this was their engagement photo, or taken just after their wedding, circa 1922. I've always loved the "old world" look of this photo, and how they seemed so sweet together -- this… Continue

I got this from the Daily Art Muse today and thought it was so fun just had to share it.http://www.peterclarkcollage.com/pages/beasts2.html
Perhaps there are other things that can be created with this technique...and even incorporated into something like boxes with plexiglass fronts. Or not.... hehe

Haven't posted in a while as 'Life Happens' as John Lennon would say. But I felt the need to remind others, as well as those new to selling on-line. The other day I received an email through my website contact, and I haven't seen one of these in a very long time. (I learned a few years back from a prolific on-line seller to beware of these.)
Someone emails you through… Continue

I am a huge fan of Dover Publication copyright free clip art books. You can use up to 10 images in a single artwork without asking permission. As a way for them to promote their books, Dover sends out emails that include free samples and since the most recent one includes anatomy books that have images similar to what Gary is using in his current plexiglass towers, I thought some of you might be interested in checking it out. Most of their books are quite affordable although the ones that… Continue

One hot July day here in Lake Havasu, Arizona, I was surprised with an email from AZ Highways Television. It is an AZ TV half hour show that highlights, historical, recreational places to visit, as well as art, artists, and galleries. Well, I agreed, not knowing what I was in for on a day when the temperature here reached about 115 degrees- give or take a couple of degrees! Cameras, lights, cameramen, and everything that goes with it, crammed into my studio. Shades were placed on the windows to… Continue

The website is called This to That. You just fill in the blanks of what you want to glue to what and they give you several alternatives. A good starting point for any research about adhesives:

For several years I have belonged to a collage group on Yahoo called the International Museum of Collage started by Cecil Touchon. This Spring, although abstract art, Dada, non-art as art was really not my forte, I decided to enter an exhibition of Fluxus Art. I have been working in new directions for a couple of years now, in between my large paper collage work. Since I was creating boxes with assemblaged tops, I thought I'd give the "Thinking Inside of the Box' exhibit a try.

I have had many non-art related issues that I am dealing with and have been unable to keep up with my blogs, etc. In the evenings, I have been reading the stack of Rauschenberg books that I borrowed from our local library. Gary and this group inspired me to learn more about him. I was surprised to learn about all the artists that Robert influenced and mentored, Jasper Johns in particular. It is exciting to read about his friendships, and famous teachers and what he gained from… Continue
