3 small collages, on single ply matte board, with acrylic painted papers, made today. Every few days, I need to switch the methodology a degree. Nothing is abandoned, but everything needs to be continually refreshed.

....on my usual walk to this field with a distant view....some new companions. 2 kestrels sound their territorial alarm when I come within a short distance of this place. They have been dive bombing me regularly, sometimes coming quite close....I can hear the air of their wings as they pull out of the dive at the last second. Acrylic and pencil on matte board gessoed both sides, 8 x 8 inches.

The crops are growing quickly. Beautiful rain is falling now, but it looked like this earlier. Acrylic and pencil on matte board gessoed both sides, 8 x 8 inches. I like how these small works rely on touch. The whole thing always seems to be a series of touches....how you touch the paint or pencil.
I thought of this too late but I should have used plexiglass rather than glass so that these could be easily shipped to my online buyers. As well, I've added a sheet of Masonite on the back behind the foam core to give stability and firmness to the back inner seam.
These 2 pieces are currently at www.impresariomarket.ca , email email@example.com It's a cool little art shop in Cobourg, Ontario, 37 King Street West...right on the main street. Look in if you in the area!

...many of these roads are wonderful to travel. You never know where you will end up, and you find some beautiful properties...even better if you find a Saturday garage sale with some rare books. These hills are always enchanting....in this case the sliver of light green on the distant hill was compelling. Acrylic on matteboard gessoed both sides, 8 x 8 inches.

....the shock of some white in the fresh green of early summer....yesterday the trailer was there...today it's gone. Acrylic collage painting on unprimed single ply matte board, 8 x 9.5 inches.
