Summer inspiration


Girl in landscape.

Gone to the beach.

A couple of collages inspired by summer.  Have a great week!

I like these! There is something very soothing and yet slightly spooky about the second one for me. An interesting combination.

Thank you Elizabeth and I agree completely, the vacancy started to disturb me before the glue dried.

Your collages are very spare in contrast to all the detail in your paintings! I love both!Are they intuitive or are there stories behind them?

Thank you Angelica!

Thank you Bunny! My process is kind of hard to explain as far as collage, sometimes the idea comes first and I have to search for the image (VERY frustrating method). These, the image first and then the idea formed while cutting. With painting, I can't seem to resist adding more and more, collage is the extreme opposite. I find it extremely to cut more and more and more away, trying to leave only the essential.
