I really enjoy making paper collages using magazine clippings.
Over the years I have made hundreds of Color collages, 11″ x 17″, intended for use as color references and teaching aids. Maggie Maggio first introduced me to intuitive color collaging at a Color Workshop we taught together in 1998 at Ravensdale.
When making these color collages they are most successful when they don’t include faces, allegorical references or attempt to tell a story. In 2001 I spent a delightful week on Whidbey Island making small (5″x7″) collages that did tell a story.
It wasn’t until I’d made nearly fifty of these small collages that I realized that seemingly I was creating a deck of hands= personalized Tarot deck of sorts as a visual journey…which is a great way to spend a few moments each day, making a small quick collage as part of a visual journal.
