It’s been a month since I’ve had a chance to work on any art. I’ve been thinking about it – my little scraps of paper, how I’ve missed them. Many are hand-painted papers I’ve made, others are found from the ground or are scraps from among my ancestors receipts and papers. A few are actually pressed leaves. Scraps from books, vintage notebook pages I found outside a demolished house, etc.
I noticed I was hording my artwork a little bit, so for my friends’ birthday recently, I gave each of them a piece of artwork that I had on hand. One of them was a similar collage to this, so I thought I’d make another one today. I found a scrap of paper on the ground last week, and that was my inspiration. It’s kind of hidden in the picture, inside a semi-circle.
Beautiful work. Thanks for sharing the process. I like the addition of the yellow door.

Thanks. I love how my kids rally around me now when I’m making something. They were both so positive, giving suggestions and describing why they liked it. They’re changing me from being such a solitary artist and I’m liking their ideas.
