Last night when C and I took Barker for our evening stroll on the golf course, we witnessed this lovely sunset. Thank heavens for iPhones!
I am taking a collage class offered through one of the local universities. As C says, this is part of their 'old peoples' offerings! Anyway, I thought it would be fun to learn a bit more about collage, even if only once a week for eight weeks. I was so surprised and overjoyed to find several of my friends as classmates...and there are only ten of us total in the class! I love that!! We were instructed to bring a subsurface, glue, a sturdy brush, and papers. Today we were supposed to do a horizontal collage. I brought along a huge folder full of clipped magazine and catalogue pictures....mainly of colorful clothing or home dec items. They proved very useful. I had last night's sunset in mind when I tore up my papers.
At the close of classtime, we gathered together and displayed our 'works of art', framing them with a mat, which really does improve how they look!
Mine had originally looked like this:
but when one of my classmates asked if the red area was a bird or a downed airplane, I changed it to this:
I know that there is lots of room for improvement, but it was so much fun being out with friends and playing!
Oh, and here's a sneak preview of something I'm working on in the dye studio here at home:
more on that later!
