In the winter session of The Saturday Morning Drawing Club we worked exclusively with painted paper collages. The first few weeks we went abstract then we moved into more representational work. Everyone does such different things given the same instructions. Collage is an assemblage of disparate parts; often of found images or colors or textures. How do we say something with it? These are what I ended up with after a few weeks. I was feeling the energy of spring approaching. These collages are an expression of feeling done without premeditation, allowing whatever wanted to show up to show up. They are small meditations—each about 4″ or 5″ square..
I’m working on more of these to see where the energy might go over time and what will get expressed. But here are the first five. An ode to spring. Happy spring!
