Memories of Dancing Days

Posted by Picasa
This is a collage I had exhibited at Mays Lake in Oakbrook, Illinois.It is a combination of papers, acrylic paints and image transfers onto a canvas measuring 12* X 12".Every time a look at this collage I get a happy feeling. I guess it is because I love to dance and don't get to do it too often.

Winter Wonderland

As much as I am quite tired of winter, there are days that make it worth the discomfort. Occasionally I take a walk in a nature preserve about 1 mile from my office. It rejuvenates the soul.

An award for Kaleidoscope of Memories

This is a collage painting created for the Memories exhibit for Mayslake Peabody Estate in Oakbrook, Illinois. It is a collage on canvas, measuring 18 X 24. The Midwest Collage Society of which I am President had over 90 pieces of art on exhibit for two months. Today was the closing reception. I was delighted to have received an Honorable Mention Award. The judge's comments: "I love the writing against the defined circles, there is a balance of what we 'say' speaks to the universe."
