The Original Art Studio has been rather unproductive of late. Photo editing as been a major preoccupation, and I have left other, more hands on, artistic endeavors to the side. When I did spend some time in the studio, the colours of blue and brown 'overtook' me and I did several collage pieces with tones of blue, turquoise, navy, rust and brown.
The photographs of these collages did not turn out well, for some reason, so I started to play around, editing, cropping and collaging them. Here is a collage of a few of my recent collages. There are three collages that appear in the piece below (two of them appear twice). As you can see, I used blue lines to separate the pieces of artwork.
Below is another collage of the same collages, without the blue lines to separate one collage from another. There are four different collages that appear in this work (one appearing twice). It does seem to merge together to look like one piece of work.
Another variation with no delineating lines
And here (below) are some of the separate pieces that appear in the above collages.
Since these works, I have been doing more painting - to be shared at a future date. However, I still find the lure of editing photographs hard to resist (are there any support groups out there for this phenomenon?), to the detriment of the 'production line' out of the Original Art Studio.
