Four Faces 2

four faces s

You may recall when Nina found her painting “Four Faces”,  the inspiration for this collage, in her garage in January.  I told her that all of her paintings lately have been percolating in my mind for responses.  This one grabbed my attention first.


I know I’ve been stuck on collages for awhile, and they are definitely a comfort zone for me.  On the other hand, it feels like the best way to respond to the world right now.  And only last fall I was drawing all the time and doing few collages.

Still true:  “It’s all improvisation.”

    I find all of the ways you’ve treated their hair interesting! And love all the flowers. This is a great riff off Nina’s painting. Hey, whatever works! We recycle the bad and turn it into something good. I think we should do that in whatever form works best for us. Your collages are always great. 💜

    I honestly don’t even know how you do this but I really love it. Honored that you ran with my old painting.

      This one is really fun. I could do more…I’m still looking for some shells to put on the ears. I know I cut some out somewhere. I always see so many possibilities to expand on what other people do. Not sure what that means. Part of the atmosphere? Look at music these days, same thing.

    Inspiration from you #1 art pal is the best. Collages are always an option for me, too. They’re great fun and not easy to do so they look cohesive – and your inspiration-turned-collage is very interesting indeed. Keep making them, please!
