My show came down today which means my Hurricane collage will be moving to a new home this week.
I have been working on the cat commission piece all week, it is amazing how many hours are spent just organizing, collecting, and cutting paper in preparation for a collage. It took about 4 hours just to get to the gluing stage for this collage. I always like to lay the pieces out on the paper like a quilt before I commit them to glued, permanent spot. Usually Eric is the only one who gets to see my art as I work on them, but this time I am going to try to remind myself to document the work as I make it. Here is a preview of the completed background:
I realize that it looks like a face, that was not intentional, but it is ok, since there will be a couple cats covering part of this. This collage will have a lot in common with Tsali in the Window as far as the window and cat theme.
