Tuesday's Tidbits 
Abstract Mixed Media Collage 
July 10th 2018
Newsletter header
Tuesday's Tidbits is a Newsletter sharing available classes, workshops, events and collage art to help build your collection.  I've been working in the medium of collage and mixed media 23 years, can't believe it. And sharing my paper nuggets and crumpled wisdom through gatherings, instructional settings, retreats and circles of friends now for 21 years. A long time some would say. All I know is that I'm grateful that I've been able to work at what I love to do. 

The art medium of "collage" has its beginnings from the French word, "coller" which means to glue.  Paper was and still is readily available to us all, it's a great source of material to glue to many surfaces. 

Making collage papers from found paper is called, re-purposing  and it's ever changing in it's process and enjoyment for most collage artists. As you might have witness in my own artwork over the years. From a torn edge or cut edge,  I've always been at the papers mercy.   Being a creative maker all my life has been a combination of inner and outer understandings expressed in hopes of the compassion of others feeling the wordless visual drama, and liking it.  I've been very fortunate to have had parents, teachers, loved one to encourage this continual crazy combination of self-express. When people ask what is your "Goal or Dream," I only have this one, to be a elder and preparing to drop off a piece of artwork somewhere for a up coming exhibition.

Overthinking ruins you. Ruins the situation, twists things around, makes you worry and just makes everything much worse then it actually is. Get out of the head and into your Heart!
