Last week of January

Well the time just zooms it seems.  I have been to some groups lately a wonderful collage group- 2 different book arts groups and have been to a printmakers studio and printed with some fun artists.  Yesterday I took a collograph class a The Remarque Print Workshop.  That is an amazing place here.
Have had some health stuff to deal with- Going in to see a specialists about a test I had.  Ron is having his second surgery on his eye-that happens next week.  So in between that I have had time for some art making. I don't have pictures yet from the workshop yesterday but here are some collages from the class I am taking.

We'll Be Watching You
This collage is very different for me- we printed some gelli prints on transparency sheets. This collage is a sandwich in that I printed one on paper then  I cut out and added the collage elements and then put the transparency over it all.
Sometimes A Door Must Close
This collage started with one piece glued down- it was the paper that looks like netting.  Then the rest was added.

River of Time
This started with the piece of map- then added the rest. I figure in front is an altered very old photograph and I printed it out on a old dictionary page.

The Weight of Home
This collage started with the piece  of numbers and letters with the square punched out.  The trees are a rubber stamp.

Not So Merrily Down The Stream
This collage started with the 2 pieces of red grid paper from an EKG I had done last year along with the piece of book text.

Emma's Garden

This started with  A piece of tissue with the colored circles.

A House In The Woods

This started with  the red house like shape I found in my box of collage fodder.  I cut the trees out of the insides of an envelop.

Another One Got Away

I started this collage with the gray scale pieces.

There Was Trouble At Dinner

This last one started out with the odd shaped piece behind the man.
