Also, I have been having a recent love affair with pen and ink. This love affair blazes every once in a while and they whittled their way back onto my work table. So the little collages for this quarterly mailing event will be mixed: some will be collaged creatures and some will be odd little drawings.
I've made about 38 little collages so far and will be making about 15 (give or take) more. Would you like to receive one? I'd love to send one off to you. Send me a message with your address to bridget3000(at)live.com.
I'll be sending these and a bunch more off in the mail on March 1, 2013 as part of the Snail Mail Event! Bring Back the Stamp! (I always love to get art postcards in the mail as well- hint hint!)

Pencil, pen and ink, collage
For example, the progression drawing piece started with an open mouth with teeth. The portion of the book I collaged onto the piece was very visceral and talked about domination and suppression...specifically about a man who raped women. The open mouth became a moth open with rage and anger.
The piece became quite cathartic for me. But I needed to wrap myself back up. The drawing below did that for me. The little girl in the drawing is protected with information and intelligence and space. She knows the danger is out there. But she is well insulated from it...and able to grow and become with what she has.

Also, the massive amounts of snow made all the sunshine on Sunday bounce even more into my house. This made all my houseplants happy. So what do I paint after a blizzard? ...a creature with many eyes gazing out from her cozy plants into that gorgeous blue... Snowy landscapes are overdone after all.

I'll be mailing out postcard collages on March 1. To do this I'll be making 50 little postcards and sending them out to various folks... to whomever requests them (and to a handful of folks who I think might like them).
Last mailing I sent out about 40ish. They went out all over the United States and one was sent to Ireland. If you would like a postcard, I'll send you one. Message your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do my best to get a postcard out to you on March 1.
Happy almost the end of winter!
