New Collage: Constructions #13

Constructions #13
5" x 7"

Constructions #13 Framed example

I spent parts of Thursday and Friday on the above collage. I don't have too much of an agenda with these other than to find out what the materials can do and to explore design ideas. Working with rectangles is where I am right now. Manipulating their size, placement, and orientation is the focus of these pieces. Sort of secondary to that is line and value exploration, for lack of a better way to describe that. So, the good news is that you can rearrange everything endlessly. Deciding on one shape and then changing  that up is a very fluid way to work.

OK, hope everyone had a creative week. I re did that barn painting from yesterday and hope to have the new pics shortly.

Thanks for reading and commenting,


  1. It's always interesting to see letters or numerals in a painting or mixed-media. I'm enjoying your journey into new places!


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I appreciate it! I reply back in an email if you are signed in and I can see your address. Otherwise I will post the reply here under your comment. I tend to cut and paste my emails too so that others can experience the back and forth which I think is integral to blogging.
