Running with Scissors

And paint, and paper, and glue.

It rained most of the day.  I think it rained most of the day, just about everywhere today…and I decided to stay indoors and entertain myself by seeing what I could come up with by using the supplies I had on hand.

This collage is on 9×12 watercolor paper and I was inspired by a clothing catalog and various ephemera that I keep in (multiple) boxes. I can’t throw away anything that I think may have some artistic merit (i.e. almost everything) – the hardest part was deciding on what to use.

But I was glad to have the choices I had on hand as it made me realize I don’t always have to run out to buy (yet another) tool, book or art supply.

The words came from a poem by Mary Oliver…by I dissected it and pieced it together a little differently.

It was a good exercise.
