Collage series

I was inspired to start making SoulCollage cards by Redondo Writer, and got some blank matboards and started clipping and pasting. I'm not sure if what I am making will ever turn into a deck of cards, but I certainly enjoy seeing what patterns emerge. I'll post the photos here...

This is the first one I made. I call it "e-merge". I was thinking of my grandma as I made it. One of the things I got from her is my name, Eleanore. She had a little Victorian style plaque of the letter E that got passed down to me, and I keep it by my bed. It's funny to think of all the meanings that "E" has come to have, post email and e-commerce and so forth. Grandma was always very insistent that we spell our name with a final E, so that people will pronounce the O as a long O and not say El-a-"ner".

This one is called "akimbo", which is one of my favorite words. Looking at the world just a bit askance is important to do now and then, don't you think?

Here is "believe", which I made to encourage myself to take the plunge into making and sharing art.
