I promised more photos of collages I created as soon as I could.
I created this collage for a friend.
This is a detail from the collage.
The words are my favorite quote in rock-n-roll, from the song “Already Gone” by the Eagles. The song was written by Jack Tempchin and Robb Strandlund. I’ve used that quote on collages before, one I made for myself and the other I made for an art show in Truth or Consequences I mentioned before. (That one went to my friend JC, so I can’t show it off on my blog.)
I wanted to show off the four collages that were in the show in Truth or Consequences, but Sue forgot them on her way to China, and I don’t yet have them in my possession. Sue’s promised to mail them to me when she gets back home, so I will eventually be able to post photos of them.
Here’s the “Already Gone” collage that I made for myself.
The keys in both collages are actual metal keys, not paper cutouts.
This is a collage I made to cover up the stereo panel in my van. The stereo doesn’t work, so I wanted something to look at other than the nonfunctional stereo panel. The stones along the bottom are real stones, and the three spirals are made from metal. Here’s the right side detail of that collage.
Here’s the left side detail of that collage.
I also have some tins I collaged. I had more, but I’ve recently given two of them away. I have a few more tins, and I do want to add collages to them, but I’m worried they will get scratched up in the van. Even a “safe place” in the van often does not offer adequate protection for things that need to be treated gently.
Here’s the top and sides of tin #1:
You get the idea: farm and healthy food theme.
I collaged two very small tins, both with a sweet treat theme.
Here’s the first one, top first, then sides:
And here’s the second one:
I’m sorry these photos aren’t better. I’m still trying to figure out how to use the macro setting on my camera. I need more practice.
