Two buildings

I started looking through my dad’s photographs. I had the idea to cut some of them up to use in artwork. I guess you could say this is my first collage at least in a while.

It’s a subtle difference but I painted in the white borders in black. I do that a lot. Black brings everything out to my eye.

I’m looking forward to seeing what else I might find in the photos. Keeping the ones with people, all others like landscapes of buildings are fair game.

    I can really see the details now, Nina–I just love the geometry (and of course the colors). I saved my parents’ vacation photos, with no idea what to do with them. If I can ever find where I packed them, this is a great idea. (K)

    I love that you used personal photo images in the collage. There’s definitely a story being told. Nice job Nina!

    Hi Nina – I like the connection with the mediums, it all works well with the very personal photographs.

    I like how reality is part of the imagined world, just as it is in real life – we always add on to what we see, I think. Love what you are doing here and the tree is fantastic.
