Braque can rest in peace

These are the latest additions to the exhibition preparation.I had a lot of encouaragement from the girls the other day so not quite so anxious.
I had never really realised how voluptuous a violin was. I was going to do a collage and before I began I took these photos..
The challenge was in my Art class to make a collage that was somewhat "Literal" and vaguely identifiable I feel that Braque et al can rest undisturbed by my challenge.
Though Photoshop is on my computer I have yet to know how to use it so this is just using Paint.

This is a book made for my great physio Janet...she laughed!

One of the challenges as a group was "Fasteners" so this is an accordian book the first two are the covers I especially like the zippers.
I wonder if we will still have zippers in the future?
The pages are all facesSome not so very attractive ???
Another project is a pelmet for the front room based on Indian designs.
It has been shelved for a couple of months but maybe now is the time to resurrect the next big project.

I cannot tell you what a lifesaver this blogging is.

I have been finding things quite dark but doing this blog really helps.

With my students who were especially self deprecating I would ask them to sing for me and tell me all the parts or sounds they "Liked" I guess the blog is a little like that.

Thankyou to all who belong to this world of "sharing".

"Voluptuous aptly describes a violin, I think - and just as aptly your splendid art work.
