I just finished a landscape collage for an upcoming exhibition. However, landscapes are my weakness, and I haven’t really studied them with my collage work. I’ll probably try to work on a couple more of them in order to figure out which ones to submit.

I met with the editor and publisher of the Alexandria Times the other day to talk about the artwork they publish for the newspaper. He gave me a list of themes and ideas for a few papers that will be published in the future. I’ve begun working on a series of collages around the city for their newcomers guide to Alexandria. I’ve decided to make a bunch of mini collages for this project so that the editor can choose his favorites from the group, and then those can be collaged together using Photoshop. Here’s the first one I completed today.

Here’s the piece I finished this morning. I’m planning on working on a series of scenes around town which I’ll post as I finish each one.

The portrait is complete! Of course there are a few areas that I’d like to fix, but I think I’m pretty much done with this one. I’ll probably return to it in a few weeks when I can approach it with a more critical eye.

More to come next week, since, well, I’ll be busy this weekend and won’t have much time to make art.

Happy 4th of July!

I finished this a couple of days ago but didn’t have a chance to take pictures of it until today. This is my first attempt at doing a landscape collage. I think I’ll work on a few more landscape collages–I like the idea of broadening my range of subject matter.

Here’s the dachshund collage that I finished the other day. I also did a landscape piece today that I’ll post later this week or weekend–whenever I get a chance to take pictures of it.

Daffodils and Green Coffee Cup

Here are the last two collages I’ve completed. I’ve just begun another dachshund collage. I think I’ll try to make another dachshund collage where the dog is an abnormal color.

I also recently joined the Art League and renewed my membership with the Del Ray Artisans. The Del Ray Artisans are about to have another juried exhibition, this one will be called “The Enduring Nude.” I think I’ll frame a sketch I did during one of my life drawing classes with them and enter it.

I’ve decided to work on a coffee cup series as well as I get prepared for Art on the Avenue (in hopes that I’ll get into it). This is the first one I’ve completed and I’m currently working on another one.

Swan and Flower Collages

Here’s an update on the collages I’ve been creating this summer. I’m about to begin a coffee cup series as well, and once I finish the first piece I’ll post that as well.
