I am about to begin a new series of collages, but this time bigger. Most of my art has stayed in the small realm up until now, which I enjoy as I am extremely detailed. Details lend themselves well to small pieces. However, I would like to start a few bigger pieces that continue my use of book covers, but in a slightly different way. What I am most excited about, however, is that this new series will use pre-cut wood boards as their base. No more sawing wood! I will be glad to have a break from laboriously cutting through thick pieces of wood with a hand saw and generating huge piles of saw dust in my living room. So this morning I am looking excitedly at Dick Blick's website and their array of already-made wood panels. Who knew something so little could make me so happy? 🙂
This is exciting news indeed!
