contemplating neverending ripe tomatoes

a new assemblage art piece created for a literacy fundraiser..I so enjoyed this project!
altered abstract using transfer of a sweet face

Ii was selected to participate in an art banner project..my banner..jauntily swaying in breeze over harbour


"Lola"
Summer's end heralded by a strong yet fading sun..school buses bumping over gravel-ly sideroads and wonderful red juicy tomatoes.
Wistful thoughts while sitting in my "empty nest"
Missing my one and only daughter..yes even her sassy remarks and her making fun of my "death grip".. on the steering wheel..Who would think I would miss
Heidi's shrill voice emanating from the tv while her face was lit up by cel phone glow..rapt concentration..a contented bubble..She is ready to fly..She is ready to learn and be in the larger more expansive world. I miss her though as my world has shifted and changed and there is a missing piece of my heart.
The house is really clean (it's what I do when I am preoccupied)
The pigs escaped today and were happily slurping on my lovely tomatoes in the garden when I arrived home today..the dogs are sleeping now..not far from my toes..sleeping..eyes rolling in vivid dreamland..calming my soul too

I love your collage and photos! I love collage and mixed media and it is so great seeing what other artists are doing and how they approach their art! Kartika
