Collage Painting

In October 2009 I went to a retreat in Oregon.  The big draw of the retreat was that Kelly Rae Roberts was teaching a class in collage painting.  Well, that & the fact that it was on the beach...& there was photography & yoga...& that my friend Kim wanted to go didn't hurt either.  I didn't expect to fall in love with Kelly Rae's style of painting.  I'm no where near her caliber, but I love it just the same.  Here's the painting I made today:

I used a Scrabble board that has been sitting around the house for a while as the base.  I totally love it!  Eventually I think I'll frame it so it stands out from the wall better, but this is the first time I've created something & rushed home & hung it right on the wall.  Here are some photos of getting here:

This just made me happy today.  Seriously happy.
