Island Bound

Yes, it's almost that time of year again. No, not tax time. That should be over for most of us, unless you are very naughty and LATE. No, it's nearly time for the start of the Season at Mackinac Island, and with it the annual opening of Mackinac's Little Gallery.



My collages are lucky enough to go on vacation to this beautiful place. Here is a new collage in progress bound for Mackinac:




And recently completed:




This collage of the Iroquois Hotel on Mackinac Island, MI, is unusual in that it consists of two 6x4 panels which are meant to be displayed together. Or apart:



Officially, in the art world, a work of art made of two panels that go together  like this is called a diptych - which is also one of my favourite weird words. (Say it out loud, I dare you.) And, yes, three panels together is a tripych, which is also amusing. Almost as good as mukluk.

This diptych and the above lighthouse collage in progress will headed down to Mackinac next week.

And here is a random picture of my chickens doing something weird. 


Looks like they are logrolling, but who can tell with chickens.
