Disintegration Collaboration

My artist friend Seth over at the Altered Page started a
fun winter project and has encouraged others to play

His project is called Disintegration Collaboration. It is a
art collaboration with mother nature . The premise is to
create a bundle of papers, ephemera etc. and tie it up,
and then place your bundle outdoors to live for a
couple of months.

How will your piece disintegrate and evolve over time
when left at the hands of mother nature? We'll find out.

Here are pics today of my bundle left in the hands of mother nature.

On May 1st, all participating artists will update photos of
their bundles to reveal their evolution over time.

The wind and rain have already taken hold.

My disintegration piece is made up of a block
of scrap wood, copper snail bait tape, spiral shank nails,
piece of scrap canvas, a canadian coin, piece of collage
art cut with circle punch, vintage text, found puzzle piece,
paper flower, used painted towels, wire, eyehooks,
wooden skewers, scrap punchinella, water
soluble oil pastels.

My patio may just turn into a rainbow of color.
I'll be watching and photographing the process.

Thanks for stopping by!

Have A Heart

I collect heart-shaped rocks. Are you surprised?

Here is my latest heart find, so I'm sending love to all
of you.

Today should be like any other day, filled with love.

30" x 36" Red Rosin paper mixed media collage

Still contemplating what I'll do with this piece.
I'll either make another folded book or tear it
up or..?

I've flipped it over so you can easily get a
glimpse of the other side.

I really enjoy these free-wheeling explorations
into the unknown. This started out as a large
painting of a Madonna and Child. I had stared
at it (unfinished) long enough to decide I was
not satisfied and I needed to move on. She now
lives beneath the many layers of paint and gel
medium. Gone but not forgotten.

Thought for today:
"A good laugh is sunshine in the house"

Hope you all enjoy your week.
Thanks for stopping by!

A Walk In The Woods

A peaceful walk in the woods, deafening silence.
No one is home. The only thing you hear is the sound
of the hard-packed snow breaking beneath your feet.
The birds are hibernating. You can see your breath,
so you know you're alive.

"We do not remember days, we remember moments"
c. 1940 -Italian poet, Cesare Pavese

May you all have precious moments that mark your
journey. My best and thank-you for your kind words.
