Free association.

Paper collage on playing card, 2.5 x 3.5 inches.

Thanks to the mighty :iconfredfree: for a couple of the scraps.

I was just looking at this again. Wish I could fave it again.

I have an answer borrowed from Ulrich because someone said that to him a few days ago - "In your heart, dear, in your heart" :D

And seriously, thanks. It's good to know you're looking again. I try to browse my faves regularly, not just hand them out and move on.

It's also good to look back on one's own work! I think this piece was quite successful.

It is most successful, and offers up new enjoyment on further perusal. The red bits at the bottom, for instance. They did not really register last time, but this time they definitely did and gave additional enjoyment. That's why I wanted to fave again, in part!

Thanks. The black line that intersects the center of the red heart fragment is amazing - and I can say so myself because it was accidental! And the shape containing the red is rather like a comic word balloon. Plus various ways the white space itself can be read. A lot to see in so small a piece.

I was marveling at those very things as I studied the piece. I love the ATC format for the compression. What's amazing to me is how the viewer can miss stuff that's going on even in such a small space, though, just as I missed things the first time. I guess it's more a function of where the head is than the actual size of the piece.

I have had moments when I wished I was working at a bigger scale more often. But I think the ATC is like the sonnet of collages - small, classic, and lots going on if one does it right.

And did you know that, if you wish to mount an Artist Trading Card for framing, there are specially cut 8x10 mats for them now? Very cool! If you are interested, note me and I'll give you the details.

two colors that I absolutely love together and alone: purple and red :love:

You know, I'm still thinking about that collage wall. I'm not too excited bout doing it digitally and having it printed, and at the same time, the traditional collage is always at risk of getting ruined :( Instead of sticking them directly on the wall, I think I'm gonna do it on a massive paper that I can take with me wherever I go :D

I'm sick of leaving my "wall art" behind lol I actually let my id get carried away one day and I painted part of my wall purple with a sponge, and a bit of gold spray paint lol
And in the other appartment [link]

*sigh*
