1437 It's a Pear !

6" x 6" collage on panel

I have been wanting to try my hand at collage for a long time and I finally got around to it after seeing a lovely one on Carol Schiff's blog. I had even bought some books way back when, from a junk shop specifically for this purpose.

I keep reading that one should build up a body of work in one style, medium and subject, but I get bored easily and I need to chop and change about, and I guess I only need to seek my approval!

I had great fun creating this, even if it was rather messy and I'm still peeling off the glue from my fingers this morning.
Three cheers for creativity and diversity I say!!!

Ok Diana, it is lovely but, I figured you'd try a cat first. Is one coming soon? Beautiful pear.

super!!! I have saved so many papers and detritus over the years to try in collage and never gotten around to it! Good for you! I understand your need to try new things. I was saying I was all over the place but a good friend said I was versatile..that sounds so much better! You are indeed versatile!

Oh, this is great! So glad you gave it a try Diana! Hope you enjoyed it. I don't think collage will ever surpass painting,for me, but it is fun to give it a try now and then.

Hey Carol B. I will have to try to create a kitty with collage but I thought that I would start off with an easy shape!

That's a great way of looking at it, I like it, Versatile ;)

Yes really enjoyed it, but much more work than painting ... all those itty bitty bits of paper, took me ages to clean up after too
