My latest experiment in collage art, "Beachside Blues."
everything passes through unseen forces landscapes tabletops the limits of freedom & most trees even the voices of oceans dusted off & debated softly over breakfast This collage is my second attempt at gravity on a tabletop. And, while I'm not certain this landscape really depicts the essence of the poem, I really kind of dig [...]
Yesterday afternoon, I wrote a short poem titled, "Gravity on a Tabletop." How perfect, I thought, would it be to make a collage that goes with it. And so I attempted to give form to the mood that is gravity on a tabletop. To no avail. From those exercises, however, I did manage to create my [...]

I have been feeling visually inspired lately, which is new for me. And I've got to say, I'm really enjoying it. I love the physicality of collage work and the attention to detail it requires.
