Scanned & printed one of my coastal collages. It's for the front of a thank you note I'm sending to the extraordinary couple who recently hosted us & friends at their gracious home in the Seattle area.
There was a large framed coastal painting (I'm thinking a print) hanging high up on the wall in their foyer. I recognized it immediately! It was in one of my coastal collages. When we traveled to the Oregon coast years earlier, I collected postcards, travel brochures, tide charts & gallery cards - all with collaging in mind.
This same coastal image was on a gallery card, which I later cut up and used in this collage, titled Beach Fragments. The cut up postcard of the beached dingy is on the right side, around which I designed the rest of the collage.
As I created page after page of coastal collages in the red Kolo Journal, I saved all the cut scraps from each collage. Beach Fragments is made mostly from those fragments.
