Well I finally opened a shop at Cafe Press. I haven't figured out how to best categorize or sell my items on there, but it's an easy enough setup. I have a few of my collages on there now, available for purchase as framed tiles, tile boxes, cards, and other items, including this new one of my mandolin girl. I was thinking of doing a series of music collages -- inspired by the wonderful job my 2 kids are doing in their music lessons!
This one's been kicking around the studio for a while without a proper background. It's my first attempt at using a nude photo. At first the kids kept saying, "Mom's got a naked picture." I kept telling them it was art. Then I overheard them telling someone else it was art. So then, it must be art!
More collages coming with faces other than Aunt Mal's. However I really liked the way this one came out. I think I feel a series coming on! And, it was fun looking for old Christmas ephemera at the flea market!
