show & commission piece

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.
