Cut and Dried

My solo exhibition at Salle Alfred-Langevin opens in ten, yes count 'em, ten days. All the collages are finished, varnished and framed. Somehow I am ahead of schedule! Can I possibly be this organized, or have I forgotten something? I'm sure I'll find out soon enough. While I'm racking my brain, trying to remember whatever it is that I've forgotten, here is a preview of a few small pieces which will be included in the show.

Sometimes I like to work small; it forces me to simplify my ideas. I can't get too caught up in the details on a panel that is four inches wide and six inches long- the small scale just forbids it. Bold colour and strong design are what works best in the small collages. These two goldfish collages are companion pieces.

My tree frog obsession shows no signs of abating:

And last, but not least, something a little different:
