We had a pizza with pears, manchego cheese and walnuts on it last night.  It made me want to do a painting honoring the pears!  Yum, it was great.

I also want to thank everyone who came by the Clothesline Sale.  The weather was wonderful and sales were very good.  I hope all of you who bought a painting have found a special place to enjoy it!

A friend emailed me the other day saying that I “might have been a master quilter in a previous life.”  I agreed with her and began to wonder where my interest in patterns began.  What we are doing with our art today will have an impact on what we will be doing in the future.  We take what we like and learn and apply it to what we do tomorrow.

With this in mind I thought of my collages where I took my old watercolor paintings, cut them up into tiny pieces and puzzled them together into a new image.  I managed to get all sorts of wonderful surprises and patterns. 

I stopped doing these collages because they were extremely time consuming and hard on the neck because I had to work flat.  Below is one of those collages.  Here is another collage “Good Humor” that I posted a couple of years ago.

It doesn’t have to be grama!  I remember having a phone like this when I was a teenager, and spending hours using it to talk with friends.  Now they are retro … you can buy them fitted to be a cell phone.
