Alter postcards

 I cleaned up my work table and did some re-organizing of things, which made me more eager to spend this morning in the studio. I found two identical cards - Henri Laurens (1885-1954) A collage he created in 1915. It seems that I got the card at the Pompidou center in Paris. Why two identical cards, I don't know, but I'm happy about it now.  I altered them with the addition of circles. Playing with Josef Albers idea of transparency. Can you see what I did?

Circles - a few circles to alter something


 I've had this postcard of a Picasso sculpture for awhile. Finally, couldn't resist altering it. What was at hand on my studio table, circles, of course.

More Unusual Weather Phenomenon

The weather was unpredictable but the unusual circular phenomenon was quite unusual. And that random text that appeared at the same time, was disconcerting.

Random Words and Circles

 I spent the morning cutting circles and words out of a magazine that was headed to the recycling bin. It was a very satisfying activity for a gray morning. I was happy to just sit in my studio and do this. And there are always small blanks at hand, ATC size, so I can just make a few small random word poems with circles. Yes, very satisfying. What do you think? Do you have a creative activity that you can do in a few minutes and feel satisfied?

Postcard size Random poetry and circles

 I had some paper on my table and decided to make these random word collages, with circles. I like how they turned out and I think I'll use these for a garden art exhibit in from of our house, once we have a forecast for dry weather for a few days.

Landscape Beautification Project

This is one of many images of my Landscape Beautification project. I don't remember if I've posted it before, but here it is again, if I have. I've enjoyed adding paintings to vintage landscape postcards, most of them kind of boring. Finding the right painting to fit into the image, the right angle, the right color, is challenging and fun for me.  This one was sent out to someone - I can't remember who - the other day.
