The Collages with Photos are built around cut out portions of my photographs. Some use irregular scraps and diverse photos. Others use a series of square cut-outs put together. Some stick to a theme such as clouds, plants, or Lego, but others combine photos because of the embedded patterns. The photos have more prominence the paper in the other collage series. The photos are printed on paper that enables painting on top, and the paintings combine photo pieces with watercolor, oil pastel, pasted paper and ink. Just for fun, metallic paint is used in a few of them.
