I wanted to share this recently completed collage/assemblage with you. I still don't know how I got from point A to Point B to ....well, you get the picture. Collage is not an art for the 'linear thinking' (and I am a linear thinker!). This piece has been arrange and re-arranged multiple times over the last year, and then, one day, it was FINITO! I don't know why or how. It can be a frustrating experience, this creative process, but well worth it in the long run.
The photo that I used as the basis for this piece was taken in Oaxaca, Mexico, during Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) festivities. I was traveling with Michael deMengs' group (art workshop) in 2007. The cemetery was beautiful beyond words...candles, flowers, marigold petals everywhere. The marigold petals were laid down in a path to help lead the souls "home", to be with their families...
