:A great Sunday afternoon doing collage

 Jamie's collage
18" x 18" paper on canvas
Bob's daughter Jamie loved my collage pieces done in Derek Gores class. She asked if we could create a collage together so she could learn the process. We spent yesterday afternoon in our garage suited up in old clothes, tearing magazines and applying pieces to our gallery wrapped canvases. Jamie decided to do palm trees on a 18" x 18" canvas. She turned out to be a real natural at doing the process and was so creative in her selection and placement of magazine pieces. She went home with some art ready to hang. She will bring it back when mine is ready for the final stage, varnishing with a UV protective coating.
I began a piece of granddaughter Kelly riding her white horse Spirit in a gymkana. I cropped it to show the horse's head and Kelly's upper body. It is a huge piece, 30" x 40",  and I have much to do before I am done. I will tackle it again tomorrow.

Jamie is a natural indeed! I really love her collage and how she brought those palms to the fore. And that house is placed perfectly too. Can't wait to see your work, Mary.

This is a nice collage and I look forward to seeing your work. Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon; I spent mine watching coverage of Sandy.
