My thoughts about the creative process and a place to share my art works.

This collage is a cut and paste one. Flickers of Memory is the title. I often will spend time cutting out many different collage elements just using my trusty X-acto blade. That way I have many elements at the ready. I have learned the hard way that changing the blade often is the key to crisp cuts. The background for this is an altered photograph of mine taken at the Judy Garland Museum. This museum is about an hour from us in Grand Rapids Minnesota- Judy spent her very early years there. And yes the ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz were there until they were stolen a few years ago. I like the dreamy quality this piece has for me. The lack of detail of the dresser in the background goes with the concept of the flicker of a memory-sometimes the memory is there but not all in focus if you will.
