Though I'm always wishing I was working on something else (for example, large canvasses in oil that your entire body is involved in producing...), I have always wanted to find a satisfying way of bringing together painting and collage. When I was in art school 20 years ago I started gluing down scraps of canvas onto a large unstretched canvas, and then I'd paint on top of that. But that's too hippy-dippy at this juncture. The little mixed media pieces I'm working on right now feel like pieces of the puzzle... I think they're teasers, pointing the way. Which is kind of exciting.
Did I mention that this is my first foray into the BLOGOSPHERE?
