I’m at it again…doing what I do best…telling stories with collage. I love using real photographs to create a fictional story, using bits and pieces of old and new materials. In this new series of hanging collages, I’ve recycled pieces of cardboard…re-purposing them, and giving them new life with paint, photographs, ephemera, and writing. Sometimes, a found quote will tell the story for me. Most of the pieces in this “Story Collage” art series are now available for purchase in my online shop, www.ArtcyLucy.Etsy.com
I hope to have more of my paintings available for you soon. It’s been a really busy summer…busier than usual around here. But finding time to paint and create, amid all the other things life has to offer, makes me happy. I hope you have enjoyed your summer too!!!
