I wrote last week about some of the recurring themes in my daily collages, and now that I'm home from yet another trip, thought I would talk a bit about the theme of travel. One of my criteria for daily art is that it has to be portable, so I can do it even if I'm away from home (thus, no painting or chainsaw sculpture). With collage, I set off with blank cards, a scissors and a glue stick, and collect printed materials along the way. As a result, the collages frequently incorporate maps or tourist info that make them a bit like journals or diaries.
Here are some examples:
Don't you always find that even with a wonderful trip, the perfect length of vacation is about two days less than however long you have planned to stay? I'm always happy to be heading home.
