Creating this collage felt a bit like creating art with my younger self. I used an etching proof I created in college as the centerpiece of the collage. I really enjoyed making this piece. It felt like life came full circle.
A collage made from scraps in my paper box. I’d forgotten about these stamps I purchased at an antique shop a few years ago. I started playing around with them and the idea of an airplane made out of international stamps came to my mind and so here it is. It would be fun to see a plane with stamps all over it…wouldn’t it?

1. Take saying my friend Kristin said during phone chat with her and create a design. “You Make it Hard to Have an Average Friend” ♡
2. While printing towels decide to pull some proofs on pink paper.
3. Cut random hole in proof and set aside.
4. Overprint with celery and black ink.
5. Decide to use scraps to create another project in honor of Kristin and gratitude for her decades long friendship across the miles.

Paper lanterns made from old promotional/tear sheets.
Relaxed plaid for a crisp spring morning.
More cookbook tearsheets and gouache. I enjoyed the layering of color on this quick study.
I think this is Day 12 out of the 100 days but who’s counting…Oy.
We went for a walk today and saw oodles and oodles of tulips waving happily in the spring breezes.

#100dayproject P is for persistence. Back in college I posted a sign above my drawing board with this word. I knew way back then that there were folks WAY more talented than me in my chosen field and if I was to make a living as an artist I would need TONS of this ingredient to sustain me across my career.
